The road will forgive you. 

There is SO much written about how to get back in to running if you've lost your drive for it. Experts offer advice like ... Sleeping in your running gear, or ... Make a new playlist for your iPod. 

But the experts have missed the point.

There is a reason you've turned your back on the road.  Something triggered it. Grief, guilt, failure, shame, anger, resentment. Those things on that list... They're too big. How could we possibly forgive or how could we possibly ask for forgiveness? So we assume the road won't. 

The road will. 

Trust me. I've been there. If you've turned your back on the road... Chances are you've turned your back on you. That's not what God had planned for you. And He hasn't turned his back. 

Get your stinkin shoes on. And run. The road will forgive you.
