156 | 365 – Running

Day156.jpg“So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadow boxing. I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what I should.” – Today I ran 5 km’s. It’s been a while and it was hard work. I had to keep setting small targets. I’ll run to this corner, and then I’ll run to these shops. All the while I had the end goal of completing the run in mind.
As I was running I was thinking about how hard work life can be. Paul talked metaphorically about running with purpose in every step. Sometimes the goals we are called to, seem so unattainable and so distant.
It is easier to give up.
To stop running.
It reminds me that I have to set small obtainable targets and run with purpose to each one. Then move to the next target with purpose.
This is how improvement comes, how perseverance comes.
Then we complete.
We finish.
We win!
