What was once impossible becomes a warmup

Apple iPhone stopwatch
Old lifetime best was 31:35

 

What was once impossible becomes the warmup.

It happened to me and it will happen to you, but not if you quit.

Dear Son, thank you for running for you

Isaiah 30:15
Everyone has their reasons. It’s not ours to judge, but only to learn from.

 

Waiting at the one and two miles marks (20 feet apart) to call out splits, i saw Isaiah 30:15.

Passion and purpose take many forms.

Doesn’t matter what we choose, as long as we choose.

Thank you for choosing to accept and believe the reason you are running is because you want to, not because you think i want you to.

Thinking and believing with conviction is at the heart of a life with fewer regrets – and possibly at the end, zero regrets.

Have fun and try to comprehend the many blessings

High School Cross Country practice
Early mornings, like 6:40am yesterday, are the best time.

 

Yesterday morning’s practice was easy and short in preparation for today’s exhibition meet. Have fun and try to comprehend the many blessings that have led you to this moment. The list is long yet invisible if you don’t consciously focus on it.

Near mile marker 12.

 

Have been walking without orthotics for over a month. Experimenting with the notion of detaching from the 12-year effort using prescription, custom foot supports to help manage chronic plantar fasciitis.

A week ago, i began running three miles at a time without orthotics.

Praying i don’t do too much too soon.

Praying, also, that none of us do.

How Can You Tell?

We see what we want to see

Man outside Denver Church

 

You can see many things covering 8.5 miles in any city. One of the most poignant was the man in the bottom photo.

Is he simply resting on the randomly chosen Church steps?

Or is he at the end of his proverbial rope, hoping that God will come into his life?
