Today’s long run was a huge blessing from the Lord. Sunrise shining on the cliffs…red cardinals dancing in the streets…bunnies hopping in the grass…horses eating in the field! What a great way to start His day! Not to mention an awesome church service! He is so good!
I was able to run a negative split. This was supposed to be an easy run. So I went out there with the mindset to just let my body run. Easy. The first 7.1 I ran a 9:13. The second 7.9 I ran a 8:57 pace. I have to keep around a 8:42 on race day. I am right on target! The thing is I have to do that for 26.2 not 15!
He will carry me through. He will be the wind beneath my wings!
He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights. Psalms 18.33
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us
