My body is tired, but it should be more tired. I did a 10 miler yesterday in preparation for the Baltimore Half Marathon in October. During the run I found a comfortable pace and went with it. At the end of my run I checked how long it took me and I found a dissatisfaction with the results. After sitting with this feeling I realized that I didn’t push myself. While running 10 miles is a wonderful feat, I just didn’t want to deal with the pain of running a little harder. I enjoyed being comfortable.
BIG CHANGE and AWESOME RESULTS
- Immersing Ourselves in Scripture – God’s wisdom is where your path lies. Sometimes we read scripture like it’s a fictional story. When we immerse ourselves in His Word we find that God is showing us our next step.
- Engaging In Deep Conversations – Allow others to reveal something about you, that you might not have already known. It might not be another Christian, but someone who’s story inspires you to look inside. Building relationships means building character that we can’t form on our own.
- Ridding Ourselves Of Waste – Instead of focusing on doing more, think about doing less. As someone who’s lost a lot of weight, I’ve found running 26.2 miles is so much easier 40 pounds lighter. Look at the areas in your life that hold you back from taking that next step.
