4th place

Well, yesterday morning was the ideal racing day. The cold froze the dirt so it crunched underneath my feet, the wind wasn't too stiff, and the sun was shining. I ran my first 8K and just missed taking home a trophy at the conclusion of the 3 race series. If only I had run a bit faster that first race. If only I had known the course better on the second race and hadn't started kicking too soon. If only I had trained a little harder. Well, these things cannot be helped now, I can't change the past. I can only look forward and try to do better.

Somehow running is parallel to life. Whatever trouble you and I are facing in our lives: sin, disease, or loss, we can only look forward and attempt to imitate Christ.
