I would like to be a better runner, a better writer, a keener pray-er. Only one of these things can I accomplish in a blog, but I can record my progress on the others!
Last Sunday I ran 10k with Mark Harris, my church housegroup leader, in a bit less than an hour. I was jolly pleased with that, as the only other time I had run the distance was in the Nike 10k in 2003 and that took me 65 minutes. Am I getting faster as I get older? I’m looking forward to running this evening, aiming for 7 or 8 miles. In potential snow.
We have entered a half marathon at the start of February so I need to get to 10 or 11 miles in the next couple of weeks. What better challenge, though, to get out and running in the midst of January. By the time it’s light in the evenings it’ll feel easy… maybe…
Edit: I’d also like a dose of patience.
