"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.

RFG III - 2014 Week 5

RFG I & II go 26 straight sessions with disruption, and now RFG III has cancelled twice in the first 6 weeks! Surely, the ice and cold will be moving out of the area soon and we will be back on track. Even if it doesn't, I know that all of our RFG'ers continue to get their workouts in during the week and are steadily marching towards our May 10th 5K! Keep up the great work.

The slides below are from what would have been tonight's session. It is a very informative set of slides. I'll speak to a few of them next week, but they are definitely worth reviewing. The injury slides talk through (and show) several of the more common injuries and how to treat them. The Derek Redmond video is a classic, your entire family will want to watch it. And the old saying, "the hay's in the barn" is further explored through our study. 

Let me know of any questions and I look forward to meeting back up next Monday night. By the way, the 10 day forecast calls for 50 degrees and mostly sunny skies :)


  1. You pack a heck of a lot into your postings! Hope the weather picks up for you soon. Good luck with your RFG programme.....

  2. Thanks ORF. It’s been a great season (and even the weather is starting to come around). Race day in three weeks. It’s always nice to see new runners completing their first 5k. Looks like you all had a record setting marathon last week in London. I would love to see the same here on Monday in Boston. Hope all is well.
