Running, With and Without a Race

As I’ve written about before, the name of my blog, Running the Race, has multiple meanings for me.  One meaning refers to a verse in the Bible:  “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles.  And let […]

New Shoes, New Year

As many of you know by now, I chose the name of my blog because of its Biblical significance (Hebrews 12) and because of my lifelong love for running.  I always feel a little bit strange writing about running because I run so infrequently these days.  After spending my teen and early adult years running […]

In Olympic spirit, I am posting this piece that I wrote several months ago.  I hope to move all of my “notes” on Facebook to my blog soon–this is the first one.   My relationship with running has given me much to write about since I began plodding around neighborhood roads with my dad when […]

Running the Race

I had a harder time selecting the name of my blog and writing “a little bit about myself” than I did writing anything recently.  I wanted to capture the motion of motherhood, the perseverance of marriage, the pace of life, and the essence of faith.  I wanted to capture my interests, my passions, my loves, […]
