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!
