Well, week one is complete. I’m thankful that I have running companions in my friend, Kim, and my girlies, Julia & Emma. The hubs, Kevin, even joined us for Day 3. I am the slowest of the group and typically lagging behind… but that’s just keeping true to my Cross Country days. Someone has to come in last :).
Thankfully I had no pain/discomfort after any of our runs, but I will tell you DURING… my calves were BURNing! During the cool down I couldn’t wait to stretch them. OUCH! Day 3 wasn’t as bad. Am I getting stronger?
I created a playlist to listen to while running. I can’t believe what a difference it makes to run to music, especially praise music. I have several songs from the Passion White Flag album, Matt Redman, and even Lecrae, “Go hard or go HOME!”. At one point, the music is blaring:
Oh, I’m running to Your arms
I’m running to Your arms…
During that I just look up at the sky and run to Jesus. It almost feels like I may just end up running right to Him… the light, it’s getting brighter. I think I’m DYING! Well, maybe this race is preparing me for the day I do run into His arms.
But, I’m not dead yet so we’ll tackle week 2 this week.
74 days til the Color Run!
What’s on your running/exercise playlist?
