It Wasn’t Just a Fluke
Nope, it wasn’t just a one-time occurrence. I experienced runners high again yesterday.
As wonderful as that experience is, it’s also brought to light a couple of things about perseverance:
1. The rewards don’t come overnight. I know that’s obvious, but I really want overnight rewards. I want the victory before I run the race.
2. The rewards do come. I’m in week six of this endeavor and truthfully I was beginning to wonder if it was worth it. Yes I’m losing weight, yes I’m working out regularly, but the workouts were hard–Every. Single. Time.
I’m grateful to have runners high to look forward to, but it doesn’t come at the beginning of a run–just like I didn’t experience in the beginning phases of my fitness journey. It comes with perseverance and discipline.
And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. Galatians 6:3
