Running for the Prize
John & I went yesterday to watch Edward run in his last XC meet at Johnson Park where his school usually has their home meets. This was the last time I'll see him run across this field in a race. The start of the late fall colors added to the beauty of the moment. Ed ran fast enough this season to get a varsity letter, but not fast enough to be in the top 7 who actually run varsity, so he ran in the reserve race at the Conference meet.
I savored watching them - and him - run by!
And run by again. And then, when I saw him run by again, I did so without a camera in front of my face.
The South Christian reserve team had 7 runners in the top 10 and came home with the trophy for 1st place.
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. I Corinthians 9:24
