23 Jun Running with My Wife
My wife made my day a few months ago when she said that she would run the Soaring Wings Half Marathon with me. She knows that running a Half Marathon with her is one of those things that I had hoped that we would do together, but never expected to really happen. So, when she said, “Sign me up,” I jumped all over it.
Today, we got in our first official 2-miler. She has been running some 30 minute runs over the past few weeks, but this was the first official distance run. She isn’t fast, but she is out there, and in large part, for me. I am a blessed man. My wife loves me enough to join me in my craziness. So even if it takes 3 1/2 hours for us to get across that finish line, we will do it TOGETHER.
Being a healthy pastor means having a healthy relationship with your wife. Notice, I didn’t say perfect. I am a flawed person. My wife is a flawed person. It is impossible for us to have a PERFECT marriage. However, we can continue to work on our relationship and build it by sharing our lives together.
