Running uphill

I am absolutely positively determined to start tomorrow.
Start what?

Start running again - up at 5am and actually ENJOYING my mornings before heading to work.
I love the time I get to crank up my Ipod and just go! Have my little morning conversations with God, sing (yes out loud), plan my day and try not to get hit by the early morning drivers. It's also a good time for reflection and organizing my heart - I know that's corny, but I feel my best when I'm running and it's a good time to make those hard decisions. I'm very "still" and focused when I'm running.

It's going to be back to square one (1 minute run/2 walk) because of my setback....but that's ok. Running is hard to get back into, and honestly - the work is worth it. Painful and frustrating at times - but it's worth it.
Anything that requires work to reach the end goal is worth it.

Like God's work in us - it's hard to go through the things He puts us through sometimes, but we learn and grow through the experience. And when it comes time for that final test - what He's done in us allows us to KICK BUTT and cross that finish line! Not literally - but He prepares us for whatever we may face.
He does good work our God :)

I have had nothing but Eagles music stuck in my head for the past week since seeing them in concert (which, by the way - was beyond awesome), I leave you with this:

"Though the world is torn and shaken
Even if your heart is breakin
Its waiting for you to awaken
And someday you will-
Learn to be still
Learn to be still

You just keep on runnin
Keep on runnin"
