Day 17 challenged me in such a good way.
I didn’t know if I was going to be able to run today b/c I woke up a hour late and I still needed to spend time in God’s Word & pack my bags for my 6 day trip to San Antonio/Austin, TX for the SXSW festival!
Nevertheless, I have became a pro at travel b/c I pack my bags so much. It has became automatic. So I had 30 extra minutes! I went in the bedroom & told my wife “I’ma go run real quick”
I grabbed my iPod out the car and went for a mile. Usually I gradually increase in speed as I run. This time I didn’t. I wasn’t mentally prepared to run. I haven’t ran a mile since Day 12 (Friday). It’s been 5 days.
However, when I crossed the invisible finish line, I noticed that my time was 11 minutes and 42 seconds. That’s my 2nd fastest time,beating Day 12 by 10 seconds. I was only 5 seconds away from smashing my fastest time!
DO YOU KNOW HOW ENCOURAGING THAT WAS!!!???
So imagined if I would have gradually increased my speed! I probably would’ve beat my record by at least 15 seconds. Plus I haven’t ran in 5 days and did that!!!??? OH I’m excited about running Friday (Day 19). I’ma have to map out somewhere to run b/c I’ll still be in San Antonio.
Well be encouraged today. Don’t underestimate yourself! Go hard by faith!
