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

Will recently started swim lessons again. He had taken a "mommy and me" type swim class a couple of years ago. This is his first class where he is alone in the water. We were worried he would not want to do it because of that, as he always likes to be in contact with you when we take him to the pool, but he took to it like a champ!
I love at the end of this he says "I'm going backwards!". He means that he is swimming away from the group, rather than toward them.
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. I COR 9: 24-27
