C.J. Mahaney:

A humble athlete recognizes his limitations. We all come with divinely imposed limitations—limitations meant to humble us.

Man, I need to hear this as the Marathon is now just over two weeks away, and I’m sweating finishing in an “acceptable” time. The fact is, I’m not ready to finish in an acceptable time, at least the time I could have pride in. But that’s just it – I didn’t start running to have pride, but to give God glory in my body. So, whether I finish long or short, strong or weak, He is my strength and my boast. May He receive glory, especially in my weakness!
