"...I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air..."

Run or Swim?
Since having Will, I have slowly gotten back in the routine of running again. As a motivator, I signed up for the winter series of trail races here (4 races, ranging from 3K-10K). Since Carl ran the road race series that took place prior to Christmas (more races & longer distances), and Will and I went along to cheer him, he said he would reverse roles with me while I do the winter series. What a sweet husband, huh? Anyhow, the race I just had was incredibly MUDDY. It was storming here the week prior, and along with much mud, there were huge mud puddles to trek through. Though it was fun, it takes a bit of a toll on your legs and race time. : ) Anyhow, evidence of the mudfest is below!
Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, whenI have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
