Simply Scripture on a Sunday - v.15

My husband, Ron, took up running a little over a year ago.  Last year he challenged himself with completing a small local 5K which benefited the private high school just up the street from us.  He did it - and he didn't come in last either!

He kept on running and trained for the Komen Race for the Cure 5K last October.  Once again, he did well.  It was a much larger event and he really enjoyed it.

Still, Ron had his sights set on something bigger.  A 10K.  Not just any 10K, but the 10K to run here locally in Charleston.  He had his eyes fixed on the Cooper River Bridge Run.

He once again fixed his eyes on a goal and yesterday, March 31st, Ron fulfilled this goal of completing the Cooper River Bridge Run!  He had a goal of finishing in under 1 hour and 14 minutes.  His chip time was 1:13:41!!

I am so proud of you, Ron, for not only having this amazing personal goal, but for actually achieving it {and doing better than you'd hoped for}!!

It is amazing what we can accomplish when we fix our eyes on the prize - that being the fulfillment of a goal. You don't have to win or place in the top 1,000 to feel a sense of pride and accomplishment.  If you set a goal for yourself and you achieve that goal, then it doesn't matter what anyone else around you accomplished doing the same thing.
