Track officially starts tomorrow. I'm not exactly sure how I feel about it. Sometimes I'm excited because of the relationships I know will emerge from the season, I'll get to hangout with Kristina more, and I'll be more healthy. Then there are the times I dread running after school everyday. Honostly, I think I'm just scared I'm not going to have a good season. I worked hard during the summer and feverishly prayed that God would use me during cross country as a positive role model and an encourager, and if it was His will for me to have the ability to run fast, that I would always give him the glory. He did give me an incredible xc season. I grew so close to my team and my times dropped in almost every race. It was a season that was definitely blessed by God. After working out this winter, I'm scared my track season isn't going to be as good. I want to feel like I did in the summer- that even if I didn't run fast, I would still praise the Lord for giving me the opporunity to run. But now I'm scared that if it's not in God's plan for me to be fast, I'm going to feel really down and frustrated. I guess to everyone who reads this, I would really appreciate it if you prayed that God would guide me through this season, and whether I run good times or not, I always display a Christ-like attitude. I want to be a disciple for God, so pray that I always rejoyce in the gifts He has given me and I use the opportunities He gives me this Spring for His glory.
