THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 32)

Some Performance coaches teach that to attain a big goal, you need to divide your main objective into chunks. In this way, you will not remain intimidated by the enormity of your dream. You will, instead, take on one challenge at a time, and before you know it, you will arrive at your glorious destination. […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 29)

I crossed the line! I finished a half-mara today! However, the day got off to a potentially bad start. Read all about it. The night before, I attended a friend’s book launch in Chatham, which meant returning home a little late and having less time to sleep. Ideally, I would have wanted to rest all […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 17)

I am thinking about what happened yesterday. Some from our church’s running group ‘graduated’. They completed a 5k race non-stop, something they probably did not see themselves doing eight weeks ago. I am happy for these achievers and have a smile inside as I recall my graduation experience last May. Beyond their well-deserved achievement, I […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 12)

My heart goes out to the families and loved ones of the two runners who collapsed after crossing the finish line of the Cardiff Half-marathon. Unfortunately, Ben McDonald and Dean Fletcher did not survive the cardiac arrest they each suffered soon after completing the race. Just a few hours before this sad incidence, their respective […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 7)

These questions are relevant, especially after every victory. When you expend energy and put in a lot of effort to reach a milestone, you […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 6)

Ebenezer! On the journey of life, there are milestones you need to acknowledge and celebrate. You may not yet be where you want to be, but you are no longer where you used to be. You do not need to beat yourself up for having not achieved you BIG goal. Instead, pat yourself on the […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 2)

This man knew a lot about running. Not only was he accustomed to the athletics culture of his day, he considered his whole life a race. When the time of departure from his life drew near, he was confident he had run a good race. His name is Paul, the apostle, the one who wrote […]

THE RACE OF A LIFETIME (WEEK 1)

The above is not the title of my new book (although I like the sound of it). Rather, it’s going to be, for the foreseeable future, the theme of weekly writings on matters that have gripped my heart; matters surrounding life and purpose. No sweet talks. Just truth. Today, I reflect on the shortness of […]
