My Love/Hate Relationship with Running

Today I ran four miles to Rays food store just down the road. Okay, so I didn't run ALL the way. I walked about half. After getting back, I thought I was pooped and just Couldn't POSSIBLY RUN ANYMORE...

.......apparently NOT!

Devin wanted to run as well. I was thinking quite Crazily.
I said, "Sure, why don't we just run out to the Goldman's house. (The Goldman's house from ours: about 5 MILES. But it was 5 miles there! We also had to run back.)

After we arrived at their house, I was exhausted! But I had to run back...

To cut a LONG STORY short, I hate running. But that's not all. I brought along my mother's iPod and it was so wonderful listening to great PRAISE MUSIC WHILE RUNNING.
I just gave glory to God while I was sweating and panting like a St. Bernard doggy. I also know that running is great exercise for the body. But it sure is hard. :)

There you have it. I now have a concrete love/hate relationship with running.

P.S. Running distance: About 14 MILES. I'M POOPED. BUT HAPPY I FINISHED IT.

God Bless You All.

In Christ,

I'm there with you David! When you came to our house I thought "Well we can run for a while with you." But it was a lot harder then I thought it would be. Oh well, I guess that I don't have good endurance. I'll have to work on that.
