Best thing to get me back into the rhythm when I haven’t been running: Pre
Steve Prefontaine. He lived like a peasant. He trained like a warrior.
Pre liked to come out hard and stay up front during races. The strategy sometimes came back to hurt him, but more often than not, it lead to moments like this, where Pre just left his competitors in the dust.
First sub 4 minute mile by the legend Prefontaine

Christianity is all about dying to ourselves. Some see this as hideous, onerous, and weak. “Why give up your desires, wants, and longings for something someone else mandates?” they wonder. “That sounds like slavery!” they charge. However, they fail to realize that surrendering our wills to Christ is like a bird surrendering to air currents or a fish to the water. When we surrender to the Lord, he gives us the power to be what we were made to be — enabled to be useful in ways that are eternal, empowered to have life not limited by mortal boundaries, and blessed by communion with the Creator as our Father. What is lost in this surrender to Christ living in us? Only our selfishness and our self-damage caused by rebellion.
