"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.

A Special RW Issue on Newsstands Now!

Once a month, going on at least 7 or 8 years now, the postal service really makes my day.  The latest Runner’s World issue arrives in the box and I turn into little Ralphie, who has just received his special mail order decoder ring, (qualifier: RW is so much better than the Ovaltine commercial message Ralphie unveils). 

I have learned a tremendous amount about running over the years through RW, and have thoroughly enjoyed the various stories and special interest reporting that is included.  I read cover to cover and haven’t been disappointed a single month, (especially when I catch the renewal rate at $1 / issue!)  That said, I honestly believe this month’s issue is the best that I can recall. I strongly encourage everyone to take a look.  Pick it up at B&N, or catch it at the library, or become a fan of the RW facebook page and over the next month they will provide most of the articles through releases in their posts.  

First, and foremost, this edition is about the big “C”.  Everything from medical studies, to various data, to survivor testimonials (think Lance Armstrong, Deena Kastor) to really inspiring biographies (think Terry Fox, Grete Waitz).  Of course, it is loaded with non-cancer related topics and articles, the best of which might be either the Run Your Best Fall Marathon or the Cooling Foods piece.  All good stuff.  Enjoy!
