When I reached that point my mind was free and began to think about how running had been so easy for me when I was younger. I didn't have to put forth any effort at all during my years in the Army, I could just run like the wind. It was a necessary part of being a Soldier and I didn't think much about the endurance or strength that was building in me. Fast forward to today and I am so very thankful for the natural gift of running that I have even though I am slower and I have to work hard to motivate myself to start but once I get going I can literally run for miles and miles. On my run today I began to think about all of the things that I have to live for and how much more I want to do and see. I know that healthy living and staying active will be critical to my longevity. My younger self ran to check a block for her employment and I am now running for my life.
God has blessed me with so many wonderful things and I know that there is so much more to come because He promised me in Jeremiah 29:11 I know the plans the I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and future. I know that God's word is true and I also know that I have to invest in the body that He has given me or I won't be around for my future that He has planned. So I will keep breezing along, running on to fulfill the plans He has for me.
