"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.

Wouldn’t You Know It!

Over the past few years, Eddie Wooten has been kind to Run For God, the ROCC 5k and even to the Running with Horses blog site. His presence on social media, and through the Greensboro News-Record print editions, for all things running is well known in the Triad. In fact, many of our ROCC runners have enjoyed reading his daily articles and posts. 

In today’s online edition, Eddie highlighted some of the local running blogs. These are all really good, and they all seem to provide a unique perspective relative to running. Again, Eddie was probably overly generous to list the RWH blog as a recommended site, but it is much appreciated. Of course, as Murphy would have it, the posts have been more sporadic in the past 60 days, than at anytime over the past 4 years. So nothing like a little accountability to guilt one into a quick post and a promise to get back on track. 

And speaking of getting back on track, the countdown to Indianapolis has definitely started. Less than 6 weeks until I try to survive Indy with the Kentucky Brantleys. I am looking forward to the trip, I just don’t know if I am looking forward to the race as I thought I would be a few months back. Knee is healed, but nagging, burning, bruised knot feeling on the side of my foot is just not cooperating. It will not stop me from completing number 12, and it will not stop me from enjoying number 12, but it will likely stop me from running well at number 12 - Oh well, there’s always number 13! 

Thanks Eddie for the push. I’ll be back soon.
