Thank You – #5

Thank You No. 5

Today, I’m thankful for running.

Last night on my way home from work, I stopped at a local park to run a few miles.  There is something refreshing and mind-clearing about a crisp November run as the sun goes down.  Running has become a source of renewal for me.  This year, I’ve run 1,169.33 miles so far which puts me on track for 1,385 miles for the year.  Each of these miles represents an opportunity to stretch.

Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.  Philippians 3:12-14

Why are you thankful today?
