1 Corinthians 9:26
Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like the boxer beating the air.
Everything in life requires some sort of planning. Athletes don’t just get out there and play ball or run a race, they practice, they learn skills that make them better, they develop strategies, etc. Our spiritual lives are the same way, we have to have a goal in mind. My goal is to finish this race and claim the prize: eternal life with Christ, my savior.

- I started running with a beginner running group. They’re training for the Pretty in Pink 5K in October. I know it sounds like I’m going backwards by training with beginners, but the group is broken up into 3 different sections: beginners, walkers, and runners. Since I’m trying to build up my endurance, I hover between the beginners and the runners.
- 1.85 miles

What are your physical goals? How about your spiritual goals? Are you able to develop them both at the same time?
#SweatPink Ambassadors are a group of healthy people who support each other in reaching their fitness goals. Some are professional trainers, some are competitive athletes, some are college students, and some are every day people trying to get themselves healthy.
I’d like to thank the founders of #SweatPink and Fit Approach for the opportunity to work with them to help others get fit. I can’t wait to get my pink laces!
I invite you to follow along and get healthy with me as I focus not so much on changing the number on the scale but creating a healthy lifestyle that I can maintain.
