What a beautiful post. Thank you! It's an encouragement to continue training for health and heaven!

As the runner of SEVERAL very slow half-marathons, 10ks and 5ks, let me suggest that anyone who finishes a race is a winner. You spent the time to train, you put forth the dedication to get up that morning and actually go run the race, and that (in my book at least) is all you need to do to consider yourself a success. I am not in any way a supporter of "everyone gets a medal for showing up" movement, but running a race is hard and you should give yourself due credit for training, planning, and doing. Congratulations, Jamie.

Ariella - I totally agree.

Jamie - you did win! Tell Stella she was right.

As the runner of many very slow marathons, I got a little teary reading this. I thank our mutual friend for sending this to me. :-)

Jamie, I love this post! And I love that you think in metaphors and can see God's work everywhere. And I giggled when you wrote " . . . it dawned on me . . ."
Thank you for sharing.
Congrats on the finish!

What a beautiful post. I appreciate how your mind works and how you translate that into writing.

Typo in 4th paragraph...are you sure it didn't "dong" on you? ;)

Just finished reading...what a thought provoking post. LOTS of things for me to consider about several different parts of my life.

Running/cheering/5-year-old talk that should make you smile: My husband runs and Tay and I cheer on other runners as we wait for him and then he helps us cheer when he finishes. Tay was listening to his dad's words of encouragement and started shouting them to the other runners finishing up a race a couple of weeks ago, "You're almost there! Finish skrong!"
