This week we looked at the idea of storing up God's commands in our heart, similar to having the "hay in the barn". Physically, we will reach the start line on May 12th and there is nothing we can do about our preparation at that point. The work will, or will not, be complete. Similarly, in our spiritual race, we have the opportunity along this journey to be of service, to honor Him, to share His love. If the preparations have been made, we will experience the full blessing of purpose and usefulness. The slides below helped to support our thoughts (you can click on any of them for a larger view).
Finally, we were introduced to Derek Redmond. Read the slides then click on the link to watch his story unfold. It was a great segue into our Running 101: Injury Prevention and Injuries. Let me know of any questions. See you next Monday, or on a group run.
