He didn’t make me fast, but I still run for His pleasure

Today I’m on (in)courage rather bravely sharing part of my new routine in life: running. Or, as I sometimes say, slunning. Because it’s most definitely a slow run.

From the post:

“If I sound like I’ve got this down pat, think again. I daily battle my will, and many times, I cave. Just ask Kat, my accountability partner. Every Friday, I DM her on Twitter with how much I exercised that week, and there are times when it’s not pretty.

But I get up and give it another go, because I’m blessed with two legs that can run, arms that can lift, and a heart that can pound. As Thomas also says in his book, ‘What if exercise and discipline in eating isn’t as much about physical health as about honoring the God who made us?'”

Head here to read the rest of the post and to leave your thoughts. What’s your motivation to move your body?
