10 men showed up this morning to get stronger and enjoy the fellowship. We enjoyed the cool weather and the fog during our 5+ mile run. The course was something like this:
We turned left out of Corinth and headed towards 127. We took a right on 127 and headed towards the Soup Kitchen. It got a little sketchy when the wonderful Hickory sidewalks disappeared for about a block but they picked back up and we continued to the top of the hill by the Soup Kitchen. Once we got to Main Street we took a left and proceeded towards Lenoir Rhyne. As I ran with the group, I forgot some hills, which is usual, but we all made it. We passed LRU and as the Armory was appearing in the darkness, we turned left onto 12th Avenue and ran uphill until our next right showed up in the near distance. We turned right and then another left at the stop light so we could run up Hickory High Hill. We continued up 127 and then circled around and came in from the back of Corinth to hit 5.4 miles. Once we turned off 127 we lost Flamer and Billie Jean. They are training for Spartan so they wanted another 3-4 miles. Good luck with that!
35 One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: 36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[c] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[d] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
Loving our neighbor is HARD but if we try to be like Christ each day, it will become easier. Let’s work to be a Bucket Filler instead of a Bucket Dipper!
