It's Official

I'm officially registered for the Half Marathon in Fargo on May 22, 2010!  Here's the proof:

Now all I have to do is figure out how I'm going to run 13.1 miles in basically what amount to rubber foot gloves...ah, details!  I've been starting to gradually strengthen my feet by going barefoot in the house whenever I can and doing some simple stretching exercises.  It's amazing how I used to take my feet for granted, but hopefully I can turn around years of neglect and get them back into shape.  Strong feet make for a strong runner.  Actually, come to think of it, Isaiah knew that a good pair of feet can do some pretty amazing things, too.  Maybe I should get a shirt printed for race day that says, "Blessed are the feet of those who bring good news!" - Isaiah 52:7  Maybe prayerfully getting my feet in shape can be another way to think about preparing myself for the daily tasks of ministry.  I wonder where my feet will take me to share the good news today?

At last! I'm not the only outstate Minnesota railfan who runs. Good luck with your training and the race. I must try to make it out to Fargo for their marathon one year.
