I am finding out that my 5km runs are not a true indication of my capabilities. I can feel lousy with them and still run farther at other times. I have to stop letting the little runs affect my ideas about the big runs.
I am in it for the long haul.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
