so I went running today, I haven't been running in a long time, or at least it seems like it since winter has been soooo long and I love running outside. I thought 'wow it is warm today', looked up at the ctm in my car and it said 72!! woo hoo! Decided that I should slap myself if I didn't go running. So, thankfully my schedule opened up and I did go for a run (funny how that happens) so I threw on my favorite pants, favorite shirt, ponytail, and my3 player. And off to the Trenton Track I went. I only ran about 1.5 miles out of the two that I completed (I know 'only' right), I did sprints, jogged, walked, but really I felt good about myself and my accomplishments. I could have (and almost did) beat myself up about how I can't run as far, how I slacked over the winter, but I decided to focus on my accomplishments for today.
It was a beautiful day, and focusing on the good, makes for a very happy ending!
Phil 3:12-14 (NLT) 12 I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. 13 No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.
