Part Two: This Half Marathon was the best race I’ve ever run. For the last three miles, I was covered in sweat. It was windy, temps were below freezing, and I do not do well in the cold. Besides that, I was now badly dehydrated and my body threatened to cramp up, pass-out, and upchuck the fuel I had recently ingested. But it was during these last few miles that God showed me more of Himself in a beautiful way I’ll never forget!

Do you do Resistance Training or do you Resist Training?

One afternoon my dad picks up my bag of resistance bands and asks me what they are.  After I tell him, his reply was simple, true, and yet hilarious: “Oh, you do resistance training and I resist training!”  In that moment I realized something. We have a choice.  We either train or we don’t.  There… Continue reading Do you do Resistance Training or do you Resist Training?
