Running without pain

I was almost out the door. It was a very beautiful sunny day in the summer of 2011, and with my running garb on and ready to go, I looked forward to a run. But right as I was starting to head outside, I suddenly felt a sharp pain in my leg and had to stop what I was doing.

Since winter of that year, I had enjoyed getting in a run two or three times a week. Up to this point, I hadn’t experienced a moment of pain. In fact, I’d barely felt any soreness since I’d started running again. Needless to say, I was surprised. 

However, at this moment it was enough pain that I needed to stop what I was doing. Yet, I knew I had a choice. I could stay inside and pray, or I could push on. For me, both sounded like good ideas, as prayer is something I love to do in general and is always my first place to turn when I don’t feel well. Option two sounded great because I couldn’t wait to run!
