Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.
Philippians 2:3-5

First we form habits and then they form us. Conquer your bad habits or they will conquer you.
-Rob Gilbert

“If one can stick to the training throughout the many long years, then will power is no longer a problem. It’s raining? That doesn’t matter. I am tired? That’s besides the point. It’s simply that I just have to.”
-Emil Zatopek

Emil was a Czech athlete probably best known for winning three gold medals in long-distance events at the 1952 Summer Olympics in Helsinki. He won gold in the 5 km and 10 km runs, but his final medal came when he decided at the last minute to compete in the first marathon of his life.
He was nicknamed the “Czech Locomotive” for his multiple golds.

Zátopek was the first athlete to break the 29-minute barrier in the 10 km run (in 1954). Three years earlier, in 1951, he had broken the hour for running 20 km. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest runners of the 20th century and was also known for his brutally tough training methods.

Show up today and support our friend Tim!
Run Hard, Be Strong and Conquer your Weakness!
Don’t stay in the bed just because it’s a little cold or even a little wet.
See you Saturday morning…..
