I kept up with Tosha til mile 4 or 5. Then I was determined to keep my pace under 10. Turning the corner and passing the Air Force Memorial and seeing wheel chair racers pass on the other side I had an emotional moment. I thought to myself, you have no excuse Kristin kick it into high gear. It was really a beautiful morning for a race and running beside the ocean made it even better!
People may ask why I run or say "that's crazy." But I say? Why not run? Or at least excersize your body and treat it as the Lords temple that it is.
Where did I see God today? On my 13.1 mile run. As I saw the determination in a little boy that passed me or a wheel chair racer. As I saw the sun rise over the ocean or the cheerleaders clapping and providing motivation to keep going. And most of all when I saw the finish line.
Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.
1 Corinthians 6 19-20
