There are many, if not most, people who question what I do, wonder why, and on the occasion even criticize my passion. But they have NO clue how many people’s lives I have the ability to touch and reach out to. Blogging is a huge platform. Marathoning can be an extremely social event. Running for charities is giving back to the community.
I could list and exhaust all my reasonings and still have people judge my intentions.
But you know what? Those who do don’t matter.
Remember David and Goliath? Even good men told him he was too small. He must be nuts.
We all know Noah and his arc. Now that man was definitely seen as a raving lunatic.
And Jesus. He was so persecuted he was put to death. But HE still changed the world.
I firmly believe God gives us each a very specific purpose in life. Though it might not be as dramatic as building an arc….
Bottom line: if you’re doing what you know you’re supposed to be doing with your time on earth, let them talk. Those who matter will cheer you on in this life and those who don’t, well…pray for ’em.
blessed and beautiful running.
