In late June I started training for a marathon which will be held two weeks from today, and since that time have run approximately 370 total miles. This began as a personal challenge to myself and keeping a promise to my brother Michael to run it with him during my next furlough. However over the last four months the Lord has used the many miles of training to teach me things about myself and how to be successful in the race of life or ministry.
A lot of these lessons have been shared as blog updates since mid-July but I wanted to share them in an organized fashion. May you take the lessons God has taught me through my training and experience their blessing without having to run 370 miles.
5. There must be a motivation other than emotion: You won’t always feel like training
7. The run that almost kills you will get easier eventually
