Life Is a Marathon Running promotes healthy living. Running marathons is a worldwide phenomenon. More and more people are training for and completing the ultimate running distance, 26.2 miles or 42 kilometers in a day, while they are still standing, alive, coherent, and in need of no medical attention. Running marathons requires careful preparation, planning, and execution. The runner needs a lot of patience and internal mental fortitude to do well. Many principles of running apply to those of living a committed Christian life. In living a Christian life, you need the assurance that Jesus loves you. Christ living in you transforms your life. Living a Christian life requires patience, endurance, and discipline. Both Christians and runners experience highs and lows, as well as expected and unexpected turns of events. Sometimes the road is lonely and wearying, but it ultimately ends in inexpressible joy to those who find themselves at the finish line to receive their reward. However, while running may yield temporal and perishable rewards, living a Christian life brings eternal and everlasting rewards. Life Is a Marathon contains information that may transform your life.
