"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.

In short, kicking-off Monday evening February 10th, we will begin a 13 week training program for the May 10th ROCC The Clemmons Food Pantry 5k.  This will be ROCC’s (River Oak CC) third annual road race event.

Throughout the study, we will hold a 30 minute group workout each Monday at 6:15, then share a hour of Scripture study / Running 101. With videos, show-and-tell, experts from local shoe stores and the medical community, RFG III is an excellent way to prepare for your very first, or your next, 5k.

Targeted at beginners, we have had over 175 runner / walkers complete the program in the first two seasons. Make 2014 your year to move forward in the area of spiritual and physical fitness.

If you have any questions at all, contact me at ROCCRFG@gmail.com  Invite a friend and come join in the fun and fellowship. This is a Triad Community activity. You do NOT need to be a member or regular attender of River Oaks to participate.
