I used to own this shirt when I was 10 years old that said, “No Pain, No Gain” on the back of it. On the front of the shirt was a picture of Jesus dying of the cross.
Today, I am doing Hebrews 12:1-2 (exercise wise) and pressing forward, casting off all the restraints and exercising my but off to get in great shape. So far this week I have ran 15 miles. For me, that hasn’t happened since track and field in seventh grade.
I have been given a half and full marathon challenge by my brother-in-law Scott. My sister and him have been running hardcore for the past year or so, and they love it. Since I am more of a hockey player running has never had a lot of appeal but now I look at training for marathons as conditioning for hockey.
Today’s exercise: 4 miles on the treadmill(maybe 5 if I push it) but wanna save energy to roller blade to the beach(just bought 8 new wheels and bearings for my blades) soak up the sun and read the word or the Shack. And finally, to end the day do sprints up this huge grassy field overlooking the ocean. O, yeah, then roller blade back home.
You better hold me to it.
I’ll let you know how it does.
