Running with freedom

The Preface of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy begins: “To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings” (p. vii). Last summer I had a wonderful healing while leaning on God, the sustaining infinite.

I was in the middle of a five-mile run when my left foot fell into a dip in the road. I felt a sharp pain, but was grateful that I hadn’t fallen. I kept on running without any problem and reached my driveway soon after. Thinking nothing more about what had happened, I continued my afternoon with errands and laundry. About three hours later, I sat down for a few minutes and then got up to find that my left ankle was extremely painful.

I felt fear come in. How could this be? I wondered. I was fine a few hours ago. I worried that age and many years of running might finally be taking their toll on me, and that I might have to quit this activity. I have always loved to run each day, and have participated in over 20 marathons including the 2013 Boston Marathon. I’ve always felt God’s protection when running, and have had many healings involving this activity.
