A Runner’s Thoughts: As you begin your day, today or any day, take a moment to reflect on a sense of balance, a sense of energy, a sense of renewal that can result from your living of life today. Think of a moment when you felt God’s presence. Think of ways that you felt God presence. Now take that energy, that balance, that presence with you throughout the day!

A Runner’s Thoughts: As we live life today let us consider the unknown and known God that we worship and then ask ourselves, how can we make this day a time for rediscovering the grace of the God – in whom “we live and move and have our being?”
A Runner’s Thoughts: Let us remember in the midst of life when things get harder, when we get tired, when we are climbing a steep hill, when we don’t feel like continuing, when it just doesn’t seem worth it, that these are reminders to come home to our breath, to the awareness that God is with us! (Adapted from Roger Joslin)
A Runner’s Thoughts: “The people who know God well—mystics, hermits, prayerful people, those who risk everything to find God—always meet a lover, not a dictator.” (Fr. Richard Rohr, OFM)
A Runner’s Thoughts: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” (1 Corinthians 13:4-8)
Fr. Paul R. Fagan, C.P. "Preacher on the Run!"
