    • 1 Cor 9:25, 2 Tim 4:6-8
  6. Running is not fun at times
    • 2 Cor 11:25-29
  7. Running with a friend is easier than running alone
    • Ecc 4:9-10
  8. Runners come in all shapes and sizes

  1. If you are lazy and out of shape and try to run, you will throw up
    Revelation 3:16
    Okay, a bit of a reach, I admit.

  2. OK.. running is good for health.. Good..
