Endurance Sports

Collection of my race numbers

One of my hobbies is endurance sports. This generic label involves long distance running, triathlon, mountain biking, paddling, and just about anything else that involves the outdoors and a long distance physical test of endurance. Unfortunately, God did not give me natural ability for endurance athletics, but He did give me stubbornness to keep trying even when I should probably give up. I am not a natural runner, swimmer, biker, or much else. I must earn each additional mile I move or minute faster I go.

Cursed is the one who trusts in man,
who depends on flesh for his strength
and whose heart turns away from the LORD
Jeremiah 17:5

I think is much more appropriate scripture for Christians who are also athletes, as opposed to the more common soaring like eagles and runners in a race ones.
