I ran 3 miles on Friday! I didn’t get up in the morning to run because I was feeling sick. I kept getting worse feeling as the day went on until after lunch. So since I was feeling better by the late afternoon/early evening, I went for a run! Last time I ran that far was December 6th, 2011… I thought I must have ran much slower but I actually ran almost 5 minutes faster! Its funny how little I thought of myself. I tried to think less of myself but the running proved me wrong! What take that!
Today I ran 2 miles to start my week out right. Wednesday I’ll run 3 miles and Friday 4 miles. I ran both miles under 11 minutes each! The first mile was closer to 10 and the last mile was closer to 11 but they were still both under 11 each! Pretty good feeling knowing I did it again, beat my best. I’ll bet back down to 9 minute miles eventually but I”m pround of less than 11 right now.
1 Corinthians 9:24-27
New Living Translation (NLT)
24 Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win! 25 All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize. 26 So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadowboxing. 27 I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified.
