"If you’ve raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses? If you stumble in safe country, how will you manage in thickets by the Jordan?" (Jeremiah 12:5). Our journey is intended to be more than simply "stumbling" through the days while the world "wears us out.” We are made to experience the thrill of "running with horses” and to navigate life amongst the "thickets." The RWH blog focuses on both the spiritual race of which Jeremiah speaks, and the physical act of running that I absolutely love. In short, it's where "the miles meet the Message" to provide insight, perspective & encouragement that might enable you & I to successfully run either of the races set before us. May our course be purposeful and may we be passionate in our pursuit of the abundant life He desires for us.

Calling all local MUD-RUNNERS!

Registration has opened and it's time for all local runners (or walkers), looking for a change of pace and a great time, to rise to the occasion.  In 2010, I ran in the inaugural Pinnacle race and had a blast. I was forever changed from a running perspective, even though I am still getting a little mud out of my ears! So this year we are forming several teams to participate.  At this time we have 4 "Running with Horses" teams formed and will spend the next few weeks firming up more local participants and then officially registering. 

If you get a chance, take a look at the website (below) and let me know of any questions that you might have.  The team event is all about the fun, not the clock.  The group of four must stay together and finish together, for I am told, "a marine never leaves another marine!"  It is also for great causes; the wounded warrior fund, marine youth foundation and toys for tots.  You will be sprayed clean by a fire hose and there will be Krispy Kreme's for all participants!  What's not to love.  See you at the starting line!
