10 Life Lessons I've Learned from Running and Boxing

1. The hardest part is getting started.
2. If you do, you'll be glad you did.
3. When you throw a punch, the power comes from your waist/hips more than your arms.  Know the source of your power to hang on... to accomplish any good... to overcome... (2 Cor 4:7-9)
4. You probably need less gear than you think. 
5. Keep your eyes on your own bag.
6. Somewhere along the way, you might reach a runner's high. Savor it. Enjoy it. Take advantage of the feeling that you can run forever.
7. Accountability will keep you in the game on the days you want to quit.
8. It is consistency that results in noticeable changes. You probably won't see them today or tomorrow, but they do accumulate into BIG changes over time.
9. Rest is necessary for peak performance.
10. Keep going. You can do more than you think you can.

So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadowboxing.
(1 Corinthians 9:26 NLT)
