Not A Runner

HE skinny

But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31 NLT)

Anyone else feel like you are surrounded by runners? I do. My brother-in-law runs marathons. My brother, who also runs, works for a company that makes energy gel for runners and other athletes. I have neighbors who run. Ladies in my moms’ group run. My Facebook and Twitter friends run. I know people who run to raise money for causes, and others who run for fun.

I wanted to be a runner!!

I mean, I did come in 2nd place out of all the girls in the one-mile fitness test in 5th grade. And I also run after kids all day long. I got this! I downloaded the C25K app onto my phone. I emailed people asking for running tips. And…that was all I did. I had excuses for not finding the time, or the weather wasn’t that great, and there were other real excuses, like I have a bad knee, and I didn’t have any running clothes, and getting some would require shopping, and I hate shopping.

So, what did I do?

How and when did you discover that you’re more of a walker than a runner?
