Journey of My Run Week 5 : Day 6 - 7

Day 6 – Wednesday, May 19

I went a total of 3.11 miles in my running a 5K journey. I am still having trouble running the whole laps straight through. Some days I do good and some days it’s a struggle. I burned a total of 199 calories. I took 6588 steps today. I can do this!

Does anyone have any tips on running a 5K?

How often do you work out?

What kind of sports do you do?

What comments or advice would you give me?

Thanks for the feedback and support!

Tonight ABC had a special showing of What Would You Do TV show. It showed a bragger getting called names. I have worked retail and some of the customers are rude and impatient. We need to change this. People, we need to change this. We need to bring back the love. I don’t care if you’re in a hurry. Slow down! You don’t want to be remembered for being rude to another human being. We can’t let fear push us down and keep us from standing up for people, who are being called names. This show is awesome in what stories they cover. It is a wonderful thing to see people standing up and helping one another. There are still good people out there.

I want you to watch the video on ABC What Would You Do TV show page.

Day 7 – Thursday, May 20

I went a full amount of 3.34 miles today in my journey to wellness. I burned overall about 221 calories. I took 7070 steps in my lap walking today.
Also, I wanted to encourage you to help one another in your daily lives every single day.

God LOVES you!

Here a song lyric from a song called, “God Speaking” by Mandisa.

“Have you ever cried a tear that You could not explain Have you ever met a stranger

Who already knew your name What if it's Him What if it's God speaking Who knows how He'll get a hold of us Get our attention to prove He is enough He'll do and He'll use Whatever He wants to To tell us "I love you"

Here is a video about the song “God Speaking”:
