Are you running on empty? Come out for 3 x 1 mile repeats and be encouraged with others during the workout tomorrow night

Are you "Running on Empty?" Come on out to Champion Running Group this Thursday Night at 5:30pm to be encouraged and have a great time running 3 x 1 mile intervals. We will meet at Ala Moana Beach Park at usual behind the tennis courts (mountainside/diamond head side of the tennis courts). Most everyone I know experiences 'burn out' sometime during his or her athletic, relational, or professional life. Where do you go to fill yourself up when your tank is empty? When you feel like your body, mind, will, and emotions are running on fumes towards a shut down. How do you refuel and keep going? Do you watch a movie or television? Do you exercise more or less? Do you eat more? Do you take longer naps or sleep more than necessary? Do you escape on the Internet, with a book, or with your hobby? Do you take a vacation? Do you seek intimacy to fulfill your needs? These are only a few of the things you may or may not turn to when you are running on empty. Some of these fueling stations are healthy and some are not...all are temporary fixes that won't completely fill a soul. I have tried almost all of these and none have filled my tank or refreshed me with absolute fulfillment and peace. So, do I just give up? Should you give up? A well-known Psalm in the Bible tells you where to go for fulfillment and restoration. "He [God] makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul..." (Psalm 23:2-3a, NKJV) Your soul was created by God to be led by God. Only God can completely restore a tired mind that is running on empty. Only God can give you an iron will to keep going when you are empty and don't have it in you. Only God can help you control extreme emotions when you are empty of self-control. He can restore... Hope to see you tomorrow night! - Coach Nate
