Find Your Pace

Find Your Pace

Take a breath.

A lot of times at the beginning of a race when the gun goes off and all the people are around me, I’ll get swept up in the action and start faster than planned. It will feel good for awhile and the thought may even hit me that “Hey, today might be my day. If I keep going at this pace, I’ll set a PR.”

But sooner or later if I don’t slow down and pace myself, I’ll have that “O crap” moment when I go from setting a PR to do I even have what it takes to finish!

So take a breath.

Take another.

This is a marathon not a sprint. We will be together for eternity. And friends for the rest of our lives. If we do this right, we will have a lifetime of awesome moments. No need to have them all now.

So breathe.

Find your pace.

Don’t run alone.

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid. Do not be discouraged. For the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
