Object - Snowy Path Ok…I'm (FINALLY!) running again.

I basically took 5.5 weeks off running (except for 1 day).  Ohhhhh…sweeeeet, blessed couch-time.  🙂

It was snowing during my 70-min run yesterday.  (My friend Merideth said she saw me running near Applebee's.)  I like running when it's snowing (as long as it's not super windy too).  It's like the world is quieter & more peaceful.  The snow dampens the noise and it's beautiful.

I was thinking about how running has taught me about life…

  • We're ALL running on some "path" in life…and God wants us to check our GPS (Proverbs 4:26)
  • We ALL started out running on OUR OWN path…not God's…and some people are STILL on that path (Ephesians 2:1-2)
  • Whenever you run, people driving by can SEE you…"witness" the path you're on…and some of them "honk" at you!  :-)  (Hebrews 12:1)
  • Running consistently helps you shed weight…the baggage that's slowing you down (Hebrews 12:1)
  • It's a lot EASIER to run on straight path, than a crooked path (Hebrews 12:12-13)
  • Everybody's race has an invisible finish line…the day that God's "timer" goes off for us (2 Timothy 4:7)

Anyway, L8R I'll be off on a 4-mile run in the snow (i.e. a "Monday Week 2 Marathon Recovery" run).
