09 Jun Summer is Here!
For this runner, Summer is not the highlight of my year. It is hot and busy. Training runs have to be done early or late because of temperature and schedule demands. It is definitely not my favorite time of year. Do I just lower my head and get through Summer? No. I see it for what it really is.
Summer is a time of great activity in our Student Ministry. We go to conferences and camps. We serve together at mission points and Vacation Bible Schools. We see God move in big ways during the course of 3 short months. Over the years, I have seen countless lives changed as students get out of their routines and spend some time away with God. While I may be tired at the end of August, I will push forward knowing there are great rewards for the time invested between now and then.
There is also great benefit for the runner. When you train during the hard & hot months, it makes running in Fall feel like nothing. So, I am going to sweat a little extra now because I know there is a reward for the days ahead.
