I went for a run this evening, despite that fact that at 7:30 pm it was 85 degrees out and pretty muggy. It was my first run from our new house, and I figured out a nice loop that's about 2.75 miles. It was also my first real run since before I left for NOI, and when you add the fact that during the past year of being a full-time grad student plus working as a violin teacher and freelancing a lot, well, even before NOI, I wasn't doing much running. I did a few runs in May, but not much.

So, did I take a walk break this evening?

I totally did.

But as I was running, a Bible verse I memorized as a kid popped into my head. You can probably guess which one - it's a common one.

"Even youths grow tired and weary..."

"And young men stumble and fall..."

And then my brain inserted,

"Young WOMEN, on the other hand..."

And then, to cap it all off, I thought to myself the classic Nike slogan:


And there it is, a workout mantra for empowered women everywhere.

Nike, if you're reading this, I know you will want to market this to your religious consumer base.

Okay, well, I want royalties.
