10 Tips from the Track
  1. Stay focused. Never look around you to see how others are doing. Keep the finish line clearly in view. (Philippians 3:14)
  2. Wear the right clothing. You need all of the support you can get. (Ephesians 6:10-17).
  3. Get the right inputs. The sudden adrenaline boost of a Snickers and a Mountain Dew will only take you so far. Stay well fed and hydrated. (Matthew 4:4)
  4. Keep a steady pace. If you start out too fast, you’ll have a hard time getting to the finish line. Conversely, if you store it all up for the end, you’ll never have enough race left to spend that hoarded reserve. (Luke 12:17–21)
  5. Be ready for inclement weather. Real runners run — in hot; in cold; in rain, snow, ice, sleet; and, yes, even a light hail storm. The track isn’t always the best. Don’t expect perfect conditions. (James 1:2–4)
  6. Avoid the obstacles. The ones we put in our own way are usually the hardest to get around. (Hebrews 12:1)
  7. Don’t try to improve others. You have enough to do simply running your own race. (Romans 14:4)
  8. Don’t seek the accolades. Awards, PBs, ribbons, and trophies only go so far. Run a good race. The accolades will come. (Matthew 25:23)
  9. Enjoy the run. That’s the only motivation that lasts. Those who don’t enjoy running quit. (Romans 15:13)
  10. Run through the finish. Never slow up until you’re on the other side. (Matthew 24:13)
