"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 10

It's ALL about the Pace! Well, maybe not 'all' about the pace, but many a runner has sabotaged their race day experience by not staying true to the rules of pacing - knowing your pace, valuing your pace, running your pace. As we began our longer distance, non-interval workouts tonight, the idea of pacing has become extremely important. So we spent much of our time talking through how to calculate, practice, and strategize around individual pace.

Similar to running 'our pace' we took a look at a devotion that spoke to how we run 'our path.' One that is hopefully guided by the Lord's work in our life, yet individually unique in both the ground we have traveled and the journey ahead. Psalm 23 was a scripture for the night and it was nice to recite these encouraging words as a group. (Oh, the skit guys reminded us of how wonderfully complete the Word of God is - we simply need to read it! - link to this video is provided below).

Keep working hard - May 14th is in our sights now and you have all come a long way. You've completed 28 workouts so far!!! Only 7 more to go before we toe the starting line.
