We are so thrilled to have Raul running on our team! He's running the San Francisco Marathon July 29 for His glory and to raise funds for our mission work!
My motivation since I first started running in 2004 has been Hebrews 12:
Therefore we also since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses (see Hebrews 11), let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the ross, despising the shame, and has sat down (after completing his work) at the right hand of the throne of God.
My running, is a metaphor for how I strive to live my life. One step at a time, it's an endurance race & not a sprint. It takes dedication, commitment, planning, and help from above.
I am "Free To Run", and it is Christ who has set me Free.
