Finishing Strong

The Final Mile Was the Fastest
The Final Mile Was the Fastest

At Saturday’s Run Among the Lakes 5k, there was an unexpected surprise.

One of the sponsors, First Baptist Church of Windermere had a booth with free Barnie’s Coffee.

After the 5k race and a Chick-fil-a (another sponsor) breakfast biscuit, I visited the booth for a cup.

That’s where the book, Finishing Strong, caught my attention.

Finishing strong.

What a metaphor for running a 5k.

What a metaphor for life.

The back cover stated, “One man in ten will finish strong. You can be that man.”

One in ten? That’s it? How can it be such a low number?

Internet's only five-a-day blogger, leaving a trail for our son. This is about putting the spirit of Love at the center of your life. It may be God, Allah, Mohammed, Buddha, Yahweh, etc. For me, it's Jesus.

Congratulations! That’s a lot of runners.

Hebrews 12:1
… and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.

Teresa, love that scripture.

Patience and path. Hardly anything more critical. Thank you and keep ’em coming.

All glory and and honor are yours Lord.
