"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.

The 2015 ROCC 5K

The 4th Annual ROCC 5K is in the books, but not before yet another beautiful morning of race day fun was shared by all. Earlier this month, 401 registered runners took part in the 2015 event to help support the Winston-Salem Street School. Race proceeds totaled $3,068.44 and were presented to the W-SSS on June 3rd. Additionally, over $1,000 in breakfast cereal bars were collected and donated to the W-SSS. There were no course records this year, but plenty of fast times from our experienced runners and first times from our beginners.

To get more of an idea of what race morning looks like around River Oaks, be sure to check out the near 1,000 race pics available on the ROCC 5K Facebook page; click here: https://www.facebook.com/ROCC5k

As a recently announced partner with Fleet-Feet's We Run Winston  race program, we look forward to a bigger and even better (if that's possible) 2016 event, as we celebrate our 5th annual race. The beneficiary will be announced in the fall and the race will be held on Saturday, May 14th.

I've said it a hundred times, and should say it at least a hundred more, we have the very best sponsors, runners, volunteers, and race committee members that I have ever seen around a 5K run. It has been a wonderful privilege to work alongside all of them as we try to raise needed funds and awareness for our local ministries.

See you next May!
