I'm waiting for it to get light enough for me to go out jogging by myself. It's 6:34 a.m. and still completely dark out. I don't want to. I want to go back to bed. I want to get some work done (not really) so I can earn some money. I want to...that's about it, actually.
What I don't want to do is jog. But 3-1/2 weeks away from my debut race I can't afford not to. And I took off this past Saturday and Sunday. I NEVER take off two days in a row. So I can't afford to take another day off after only one day back.
I thought that maybe if I re-read some of my first posts it would inspire me to get out there and run. Here's an excerpt from the first one:
"My reason for taking up this blog again, which I set up 1-1/2 years ago but never did anything with, is to encourage you to allow God to dream big within you so that together you and He can do amazing things, hard things, things that you'd never be able to do on your own. And to encourage you to give Him the glory and credit for them."
I really don't think God's going to do anything amazing with me if I go back to sleep. Work will still be here when I get back. I need to just go. I may need to make each tree I pass a marker. "Just go to the next tree." "Just go to the end of this section."
God, You're going to have dream big within me this morning.
