It was such a beautiful sunny day in MK today. After church I donned my running shoes and headed for Caldecotte Lake intending to do a lap around. At the lake there was a guy in front of me jogging. When I caught up with him I realised he was one of the runners taking part in the Enigma marathon. They run 7 laps of the lakes!! I take my hat off to them!! I got chatting with this guy, John, who is 75 years old and was running his 392 marathon! Can you believe that! On top of that he lost an eye to cancer, a few years later he had bowel cancer and he beat that too! I was just so inspired by this gentleman! So I ran the last 2 laps of his marathon with him, and I was so honoured to be part of his 392 marathon.
So for all of us able bodied beings, we have no excuses at all to not exercise.
Hope John will inspire you as much as he did me.
Have a blessed week ahead.
