running close to God

Stephanie Hood, a long-distance athlete from Canada shares her joy in running.

We got together to talk about athletic competition, and especially our mutual delight in middle-and long-distance running. Instead we spent most our time talking about spiritual progress—though we agreed this was time well spent.

"This whole running experience is about becoming closer to God," says Stephanie with undisguised enthusiasm. "And when you get closer to God, you know yourself so much better—your true self, your spiritual self."
