I did it! Last Saturday I ran and completed the Cowtown Marathon in Ft. Worth, TX. I improved my time from last year by 20 minutes. The target time was 3 hours, 50 minutes. I made it across the finish line in 3 hours, 50 minutes! It sounds crazy, running 26.2 miles. But, it is a reminder that you can do anything you set your mind to. God has greatly blessed the human body with mental and physical abilities. Very few, if any, reach the apex of what they could accomplish. You may not set out to run a marathon, but set a goal for something that really stretches you. Maybe it is to read the Bible through in one year. Maybe it is to develop a friendship with someone. Maybe it is to jump out of an airplane (something else I want to do one day). Whatever it is, go for it. Life is too short to live with regrets. The marathon was tough. The last three miles were horrific. But, I pressed on. Whatever you are going through or striving for, press on. You can and will (by the grace of God) make it!
