"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.

Run For God - 2016 / Week 2

Keith Davis keeping us entertained and informed! 
"It's Gotta Be the Shoes!" - I'm not certain Spike Lee ever convinced us that Michael Jordan's talent was a result of his shoes, however, when it comes to running, there is definitely a strong correlation between injuries, experience, and performance, and the shoe that we choose. Keith Davis, from the Winston Salem Fleet Feet / New Balance stores, shared great insight with us last night on how shoes manage our foot's ability to stabilize, propel, and swing. All three of these mechanics, which happen some 60-80 times a minute for each foot, affect everything from lower leg to knee to hips and backs.

More information on the slides below can be found in chapter 3 of your RFG book, as well as in the information sheets that Keith distributed last night. He would be more than happy to answer any of your shoe - sock- insert related questions.

Have a great week #2 series of workouts and don't forget to reflect upon that Hebrews 12:1 bookmark throughout the week. Run with endurance both of these races that have been set before us!
