Running has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. It is helped me through some really challenging times and has become a very thin place between me and the Lord. I’m excited to be running for this cause and using my passion to help build Gods economy. - Erica
I started running back in 2011 to support my wife in leading a bible study called “Run for God”, this study paralleled your Christian journey with running a marathon by emphasizing a daily focus on training your body to run and your heart to follow Christ.
Since then my wife and I have run many 5K’s and I have ran my first half marathon. I feel immense joy and I’m thankful that the Lord has been with me to strengthen me.
The Apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 9:24 - 27, "Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified." - Don
