These shoes traveled almost 1,000 miles on runs I took over the past year. (For anyone that's a runner reading this, yes I know I'm supposed to replace shoes every 500 miles. They cost so much!!) That is a crazy amount of pavement, gravel, grass, snow, ice, and puddles that my feet have traversed.
It is also a lot of time that I have been able to spend praying, worshipping and listening to God. Running for me is so much more than the exercise. That is really just a bonus to why I love to run (because then I can have that bowl of ice cream and not feel overly guilty!!) When I head out the door, it's just the road, God, my music and me.
I would have to say that over this past year one of my favorite songs to listen to while running was Our God by Chris Tomlin. I normally don't sing out loud when running, but I am quite sure on several occasions you could hear me singing this one.
For Christmas I got his new CD with this version and I LOVE it.
