I Am A Runner...

It's funny as I am finishing up this week that I took totally off from running, I am so anticipating tomorrow morning's run! I can't wait! I think my body has recuperated enough now that it is just now realizing I actually ran a half marathon!

While I was taking the trash out to the dumpster I was thinking about tomorrow's run...and my mind went to my last race and then the half marathon that I ran a couple weeks ago. I think I actually started walking different - just thinking about having run a half marathon. That's when I had the thought: I think I'm a runner!

I still want to do a full marathon later - and eventually a full marathon. Then I want to do a Warrior Dash - those look like so much fun! And I'd like to give trial running a shot too...but all of that was not even possible two years ago when I first started training for the 5K!

It's funny how when we take on a new adventure we can barely take on the day...but then we start stretching out further and further and do more than we even imagined. And no matter how much progress we make we feel like we'll never get to do it all. I am trying to imagine what it would feel like to be able to honestly say "I did it all!" I can't even get my brain to go there because there will always be something we have not done or experienced yet. No matter how accomplished we are at one particular thing- we will never be good at everything or accomplish everything.Championship golfers will probably never play in the NBA finals or a super bowl. The players who won last year's World Series won't ever know what it's like to run a marathon...and the list goes on. We'll never ever have a handle on it all!

Maybe that's the way God designed us. If we could do everything we might not need Him. So be content and do what you can do  the best you can...and don't worry about the rest. If you could do it all...you'd be God! So I am content to admit - I'm a runner!
