The Race

I ran this 10K (6.2miles) this morning. The purpose behind the race is to get an automatic spot in the annual DC Marine Corps Marathon in October. As I was nearing the last stretch of the course, the announcer said, "only 20 more miles of this in October." Ugggghhhhh. It's a great feeling to finish an event, but that just means I'm one day closer to the next race...more mileage... faster training... more pounding on the body, etc etc.. Some may say, "and you enjoy this?" I don't always like the prep work it involves, but finishing something I started makes it all worth while.
Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

  1. Girlfriend! You are a rockstar with that run time! Unbelievable.

    And better yet- why do we run? I believe it is because of the feeling of accomplishment afterwards.

    And for the catch-up time with girlfriends during the between gasps of air that is..

    See you next time we run in the 'hood!
