"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.

ROCC RFG 2017 - Week 12
It has been a wonderful season with a large number of committed runners and walkers, perhaps the largest number we have ever had. But more importantly, it has been a season of deeper connection and Scriptural pursuits. Thank you for your interest and your participation.
I am excited about your race and cannot wait to share in your moment. You will all do well if you will:
* Trust your pace
* Trust your training
* Trust your "why?"
* Trust your plan
Let me know of any questions this week, and I look forward to seeing you at packet pickup Friday night, and in front of the church, 7:30 am, on Saturday morning.
Keep running with horses and keep running for God.
