“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.

10 Things Running Has Done for Me

 Yesterday, Shelly from It's Just One Foot in Front of the Other posted a Lift Your Soles giveaway.  One of the ways to enter was to post 10 things running has done for you.  I thought I would share that list with you!

10 Things Running Has Done for Me
1. Running provides me the time I need everyday to clear my mind and connect with God.

2. I has given me a sense of accomplishment and helped me meet and exceed goals.

3. It has boosted my confidence in my abilities.

4. Running has helped me maintain a healthy balance in my crazy sometimes chaotic life.

5. It helps satisfy my competitive drive.

6. It has helped to spark a love for running in my boys. Something I pray will be a lifestyle decision for them!

7. It has made me more aware of my body and the way it works.

8. It was the catalyst that introduced me to the blogging world where I have connected with wonderful runners from all over the world!

9. It has given me the boldness to encourage my friends and loved ones to start running and live healthier lifestyles.

10. Running has taken me farther than I thought I could ever go, faster than I ever imagined was possible!

I to run!
I to talk about running!
I to write about running!

What has running done for you?

Grace and peace,

April,
I love your list!!! I love to run, but since PFA (Patella Femoral Arthroplasty) surgery at the Mayo Clinic November '08 I've been unable to. I'm really hoping that one day I'll be back at it. I feel so free when I run. It gives me such a boost!!

Thanks for visiting me. I look forward to getting to know you better.

Have a Blessed evening,
Dawn
