Years ago, I enjoyed running medium to long distances. I ran in several 5k, 10k race events and even a few half marathons – nowadays, my pace is more in the “walking” category. I was never interested in the competition of the race – although it was enjoyable to receive 1st place in my age category in a 5k a few years ago (secret is: I was the only runner in that age category!) – but I was more interested in the accomplishment of going the distance.
What I learned during my training for these races, and then running them is this: keep your pace steady throughout the race and stay hydrated. In order that I could make it across the finish line in one piece, I needed to maintain my energy level and not get dehydrated.
The same is true in our life journeys. Balance and nourishing our spiritual life is key to making it through the distance. So whether you are in a strong spiritual nourishing routine, or if you need a little boost, we hope you find this “Midweek Water Break” refreshing and energizing!
