Spark start date 12/21/07.
Goals tracking start date: 12/31/07

One of my many fav. Bible verse.

"Pressing toward the Goal"
I am focusing all my energies on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I strain to reach the end of the race and receive the prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us up to heave.....Philippians 3:13-14

THE COMPETITOR'S CREED

I am a Christian first and last.
I am created in the likeness of God Almighty to bring Him glory.
I am a member of Team Jesus Christ.
I wear the colors of the cross

I am a Competitor now and forever.
I am made to strive, to train, to stretch and to succeed in the arena of competition.
I am a Christian Competitor and as such, I face my challenger with the face of Christ.

I do not trust in myself.
I do not boast in my abilities or believe in my own strength.
I rely solely on the power of God.
I compete for the pleasure of my Heavenly Father, the honor of Christ
and the reputation of the Holy Spirit.

My attitude on and off the field is above reproach-
my conduct beyond criticism.
Whether I am preparing, practicing or playing;
I submit to God’s authority and those He has put over me.
I respect my coaches, officials, teammates and competitors
out of respect for the Lord.

My body is the temple of Jesus Christ.
I protect it from within and without.
Nothing enters my body that does not honor the Living God.
My sweat is an offering to my Master.
My soreness is a sacrifice to my Savior.

I give my all-all of the time.
I do not give up. I do not give in.
I do not give out. I am the Lord’s warrior-
a competitor by conviction
and a disciple of determination.
I am confident beyond reason
because my confidence lies in Christ.
The results of my efforts must result in His glory.

LET THE COMPETITION BEGIN. LET THE GLORY BE GOD’S!

I'm not too happy with my finish time since the final time was slower than my first marathon. But I have to say I ran pretty strong with sickness (flu) and 2hours of sleep night before the event. All my strength came from the Lord. I did lots of praying while I was running. I was already tired before the race started. YIKE!
Overall, the Boston Marathon was pretty good experience.

Okay...next is 1/2 Ironman!
