Physical- this one is an obvious one- I run to feel healthy, to feel strong, to know that, physically, I am pushing my body out of the comfort zone. I run because I can...
Spiritual- This one is another obvious one for me- I have mentioned it before- but when I run, I feel, and I know, that I am NOT running alone. I live my life for the one who died for me- so, as I live my life- I take joy in the gifts that He has given me. In the abilities He has placed in my hands (or feet)- I may not be the swiftest but as long as I am serving him with my hands and feet-- well that's all that's needed.
Heart- This is something I am seeing over and over- a runner has to have a heart for it- a passion somewhere inside of them to run. The more I run, the more that grows. If I take too long of a break from running (such as recently) it still grows, just at a slower pace. Where is your heart? What is your passion? What are you running for?
I know this is in regards to baseball but it does use my favorite team so I have to share ;) Instead of why I play- this is why I run- for that unfinished business....(oh, and for the record- I couldn't decide which video to share- so you may see the others added in to other blog posts in the future)
