Combining Two Activities
Been running, though I’m tapering down this week for a 15k on Saturday morning — it’s the Newnan’s Lake 15k, ran it for the first time in about 1983, a flat course on Lakeshore Drive around a pretty lake.
I haven’t done any “overdistance,” but Monday a week ago (January 16th) I did run the ACTUAL distance. Thought to run 8 miles, said aloud, “Maybe 9,” so 9 miles was implanted in my brain. Did 9 ’cause I felt fine, but musta been a little spacey, low blood sugar and all, took a slight wrong turn down a cul-del-sac IN MY OWN NEIGHBORHOOD.
So I thought, well it will be 9.3 then; so I did. No real soreness or other health problems, so guess I’m good to go.
The other activity this year was suggested by my pastor, Rich Clark, in his Jan. 15th sermon — 15 days of examining the state of my soul, as if I’d never tried it before. So been doing that — my soul is of course tarnished by wear, sin, and age, but my salvation has already been taken care of, long ago.
Found something nice on Rachel Evans Held’s blog, which turns out to be a quote from Psalm 90, Verse 12: “Teach me to number my days, that I may gain a heart of wisdom.”
orking on it, working on it.
