On every long run there is a point where you realize that physically you are done, your body just can’t possibly move forward and every ache and pain comes to the forefront. This is where mental toughness comes into play and quite frankly this is where you better have faith in something more than what you can do. For me this is exemplified in 2 Corinthians 12:9, “….My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” There are many times where people tend to look at admitting weakness as something negative but I believe it is the complete opposite, this is a positive in my life. Running loosens something in my life where I am able to not only see my weaknesses but allow the Holy Spirit to give me strength I know I don’t have.
Living an ultra life and moving forward relentlessly means realizing where you are weak and have need of a Savior is actually one of the strongest things you can do.
