Day #98: Give Exercise to Your Body

Day #98: Give Exercise to Your Body 1

Running is something we used to do often - all four of us together. I would push our double jogger and run next to Stephanie, but lately it has been difficult to make happen. We keep changing campgrounds, jogging-friendly paths are not always easily accessible, and our jogging stroller isn't as much fun for the girls on rocky, uneven terrain.

We have been feeling a bit frustrated about exercise (or lack thereof) so this morning when Stephanie said, "I am going to go for a run" I was encouraged by her initiative. The girls and I ate breakfast as we waited for her return.

Tonight, just after dinner, the thought crossed my mind that I should go on a run too. I ran a few miles alone through the woods, near a huge river. It was exhilarating. I saw deer 3 times (six Whitetail - no antlers) and came back so muddy I had to hose off my shoes.

Both of us feel great tonight. A little exercise makes a huge difference!

Is it just us or do you sometimes find it difficult to actually "go" and exercise?

Our family spent 2011 traveling the USA in an RV, striving to intentionally "give every day" for the glory of God. We interviewed CEOs of nonprofits and served alongside over 40 organizations and churches.
