Dear Son

Dear running

Dear running,

Finding more time to pray, finding more things to pray about, and improving the quality (depth) of my prayers are because of you.

Thank you for the gift of focused “free-time” to feed my soul.

Patience is a blessed virtue when used for good

Map My Run screen shot
A couple days ago. Exercise honors the temple housing everything keeping us alive.

 

Chapin began jogging (slower than walking) on Halloween two days ago.

Cheryl began with us yesterday, November 1, 2015.

Patience is a blessed virtue when used for good.

Cheryl and i have known each other since 1979.

After 37 years, to begin running, is a big deal.

Stuff We Do

The joy in routine

Disney's Monorail
On the run home yesterday, Monorail yellow in a hold pattern.

 

Disney World's Space Mountain
Unique viewing angle of Space Mountain that most never see.

 

Disney University
Safety is as important as Magic at Disney. Yet our Guests have no idea.

 

United States Marines trailer
Cutting through a townhouse complex on the way home.

 

United States Marine pride
United States Marine also appreciates (loves?) Disney (lower right “hidden Mickey”)

 

Secret running path near Disney World
A seasonal shortcut, available during drier weather.

 

The joy in routine is there if we aren’t too busy or distracted to notice. i was simply out for a morning run.

Journey On

Name calling and stereotyping come with the territory

Disney keynote Speakers
The halfway point during yesterday’s 11-mile run.

 

Running is easier when we are not over heated. Running shirtless in high humidity helps. You may get called a show off though.

Praying is easier when we are not overly distracted. Praying constantly helps us overcome distractions. You may get called self-righteous though.

Here’s The Thing About Running

Do you have routines that you do everyday? Not the traditional ones like driving to work the same way each day, or brushing your teeth after a meal, but daily routines to help you focus and improve yourself to help others?

As I was on my knees a few minutes ago, saying three daily prayers, it hit me. Yesterday’s post asking, “Is running a religion?”, really is a metaphor for our spiritual life.

For a “serious” runner, getting and staying healthy can be fun, challenging, consuming (religion-like), and ultimately, rewarding. Does your spiritual desire match that of a “serious” runner?
