Race Day…living the dream

2 Comments

I love race days.  Running gives me the opportunity to “live” in my dream world.

If only for an hour or so I get to live in a place where everyone is focused on the same thing…the finish line.  We all get along, are excited about life & enjoy each other’s individuality….(although it is often quirky & at times questionable.)  As illustrated in the following photo:

We are busy focusing on our own personal goals leaving no time(or breath for that matter) to judge or criticize each other.  Much excitement & motivation comes from encouraging our fellow racers.  It is a place where true success has little to do with who crosses the finish line first.  It is instead defined by the personal goals set by each runner, and the individual effort they put into reaching them.

In my dream world…everybody loves, everybody learns…everybody wins.

I really like it there…

Running inspires me to live. It helped me remember what winning felt like during a season of loss. The Lord speaks to me most during the miles....because there I'm giving Him the time to do so. These are the things that motivate me to run. I hope they inspire you to live God's best for your life as well. Happy Running!
