Since that appointment, each time that I run I am reminded of my doctor's words. Now, while I run, I pray,
"God, please give me the heart of a runner.
Make my heart beat
strong and steady for you."
Life is not always easy...or fun. Sometimes it is very difficult (been there and done that) BUT I don't ever want to quit MY race. I don't want to fail. One day when I stand before God, the Great Physician, I want to hear Him say,
"Lisa, you have the heart of a runner.
Your heartbeat is strong and steady FOR ME.
You have ran a good race.
