Marathon Journal: 7 miles
January 10, 2010
Don’t be too impressed, I was trying to do 10. My cardiovascular is a lot more out-of-shape than I thought. By the time I warmed up at mile 2 my body was feeling so good that I thought I could do a pretty long run. By mile 4 I was so tired that I started praying to God, “Help me jog just a little farther!”
I like to pray during jogs. I don’t really know what to say, it would all sound pretty stupid if I quoted my prayers in a blog, but I like to multi-task while jogging. I also run script scenes through my head to come up with better plot points and character names.
I listened to apologetics: Chris Neiswonger, Greg Koukl and William Lane Craig. Spun some music from last year’s running shuffle collection: Amy Winehouse, Big Star, Rage Against the Machine, Talking Heads, Johnny Cash and MGMT and Major Lazer.
