Run for Mercy

This is the sponsors banner from the Run for Mercy 5k in Charlotte on Saturday, September 18th.  Our church had the privilege of helping sponsor this event for Mercy Ministries, a more-than-worthy cause.


Run For Your Life!…No, Really

Reposted from George Grant’s run blog

According to a new study from the Stanford University School of Medicine runners live longer, healthier, more productive lives than non-productive lives. No surprise there. But, it also showed that runners have no greater risk of injury–to their knees, their back, their ankles, or their feet. Indeed, elderly runners have fewer disabilities, a longer span of active life and are half as likely as aging nonrunners to die early deaths, the research found.

Dr. George Grant, another of my favorite writers/teachers/pastors keeps about 843 blogs, one for every hat he wears.  I keep just one.  So, while he uses his “run blog” to post inspiration, comments, and stories from his runs, races, and endurance training, I will just post it here.

Here is a great commercial from Nike’s LiveStrong line (Lance Armstrong).  Watch it…then get off the couch and do something!
