Today, I had a pace of TEN MINUTES AND TEN SECONDS, and I ran THREE POINT FIVE MILES AT THAT GENERAL PACE.
Holy cow, somebody pinch me.
It wasn’t too difficult at all, which was surprising, and my knees feel perfectly fine.
I feel so accomplished and strong and I just want to cry.
I’m floored that the Lord would bless my workout today, considering how sinful I was this week, but He did, and now I’m trying to figure out how I can bring glory to Him through my fitness endeavors right now, and not just in the future if my church would be okay with me having Fitness Fridays to help church members be fit, because there are plenty of people in the church that are not fit and unhappy, and that fantastic runner’s high I experience every now and then, I just want the whole world to experience it.
Plus of course, the feels that the beautiful and lovely Holy Spirit gives, I want everybody to feel them <3
God, I have to lay this part of my life at your feet and ask for You to help me glorify You.
I can just see myself in the future yelling at my fellow church members to not give up and ignore the pain, but also throwing in plenty of compassion and empathy of course.
Jesus, thank You for making me someone that I respect and like.
