I like to think every morning when I wake up that I have a “mission” to accomplish. There is always the normal responsibilities that come with everyday life….working, taking care of kids, planning meals, and the list goes on. I am very disciplined with planning my day and getting my training scheduled in. The one thing I loose site of is the most important yet so obvious, WHY DO I RUN? You wear yourself out physically and mentally but then you have to step back and remember why you got here in the first place. What am I really trying to pursue? I started ultra running 3 years ago because I was so impressed by how my mind quieted and God spoke to me while I was running. I did not have to get on my knees and pray…..running was praying for me. My choice to pursue this passion was given to me and guided but I do loose sight of the reason I am pursuing this CHOICE! Yes, as Robin my massage therapist stated, “Life is a marathon NOT a sprint.” Oh Yeah!!!!! So true!!! It is like getting slapped in the face and realigning your soul to what your choices have been made. Thank you Robin!!! I believe I have come into mortality with a mission in life and I will pursue my life unto its natural end!
What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good ? Psalms 34:12 I love each and everyday I am here on earth. I choose to make choices to help another. I am blessed to have all of you! It feels like I have had a week of sleep that I have needed !!! Thank you my friends.
