Running is easier than the Bar Exam
I ran three times last week. Three times! I also went to yoga twice, for a total of 5 days of working out. No wonder I could barely move yesterday. Week 1 of my journey to physcial fitness was a success. This morning, I started week 2. I’ll admit that I was not looking forward to it. I woke up in the middle of the night filled with dread. Then, we got started, and after my first interval, the watch battery died so I had no idea how long I was running. I was pretty cranky at this point and wanted to quit. I’m happy to report that I did not quit, but I did have a bad attitude (sorry Bill!).
As I embark on this endeavor, I was trying to think of all the things that I’ve accomplished that were harder than running. I realized that running for 15-20 minutes is really a whole lot easier than most of the challenges I’ve faced. Maybe this thought will help me keep on going…
Philippians 4:13: I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. This really means I can do ALL things. It’s kind of a crazy thought. There’s nothing too big, nothing too difficult. It’s hard to imagine, but it’s true!
