In this short video I tell the story of how I got into running in Nashville’s Country Music Marathon. This year will be my third.
When I was Pastor of Worship and Arts at Belmont Church on Music Row, the marathon route would go right in front of our church. For many years we have put a worship team out there to cheer on the runners.
To see the ocean of humanity – 20, 25, 30,000+ thousand runners go by was amazing. I decided it would be fun to be a runner instead of musician and ran my first half-marathon in 2009. That year I even stopped for a few minutes and sang A New Anointing (This Is The Day) with the worship team. That was fun but it dinged my time.
Finishing the full marathon is on my bucket list and one of my 2012 goals.
In the video I mention The Ultimate Guide to the best New Year Motivational Blog Posts to launch the year. They’re great articles to check out anytime.
