Morning Run

runningMy wife and I went on our first morning run together this morning. She was encouraged by a friend to start running and she passed on the encouragement to me and (surprise!) we actually did it this morning. It was good to get out and enjoy the morning air, it was like 60 something degrees it was great!

This morning run was a good thing, no doubt, but it was just a first step.

To be healthy we have to continue to wake up a little early and get out there and run.  Just once in a while is not good enough. Which is not easy (or particularly fun all the time). But, once you’ve done it, you feel good and you know you’ve done something good.

That reminds me of a Bible verse…(go figure)

Luke 9:23
Then he said to them all: “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.

If life is a race it’s certainly not a sprint, its a daily marathon. Fight to make right decisions and follow Christ everyday. Not just when its easy, or convienient, but even when it takes effort and patients and self control.
