Starting something and keeping on going are two very different things; each with their unique challenges. One needs the motivation to "just do it" (thank you nike) the other requires the persistence of endurance. I have a dream of running a 10 km race before I turn 25 (only a year and two months away) so yesterday I begin training. Starting was fairly easy...finishing will be another story. I know there will be dark, cold days when the last thing I want to do is run a few miles. This dream, any dream for that matter, requires endurance.
Endurance requires grace and strength. I hope that I will process both.
