So that was BEFORE the half ironman.
Did you finish?
Mike, such great encouragement, and reminders of what it is we are doing here… the imagery of striving toward the finish line for me means in struggle of it all and discipline in learning God’s ways, I am so happy to be preparing for my crown, preparing for eternity!
For you sir I have no doubt, you are (fighting the good fight), you will (finish) and you have (kept the faith). ~ Mel
Do you know if it’s possible to download these to use for a middle school class?
Erin – Yes. Thought that would be enough. Now trying to figure out how to find the time to train for a full ironman. (Impossible to find the time now, I think.)
Mel – Thanks, dear friend.
Laura – Yes, if it’s on YouTube it can be downloaded. A simpler way would be to show it straight from the internet if you have connectivity in class.
Great video! I commented on Facebook, but wanted to share here as well. I have been training for Ironman for over 4 years. As you stated, in reality I made the decision to Train! Not to “do” the Ironman. A few weeks ago, my 3rd 1/2 Ironman was 1 hour faster than my first. 45 lbs heavier, I could barely swim a few laps several years ago.
Now, in one month I will race in my first Full Ironman. That will be the prize! The training is the toil. Delight follows discipline.
Through this process, I have found a deep correlation in Ironman training & discipleship. I believe IN Christ and have faith IN Christ, but I strive for the faith OF Christ. Godliness takes daily training & discipline.
Thank you so much for this message. You Can do the full Ironman. Just imagine those words at the end, “Mike Cope, You are an Ironman!’
Thank you, Mike!
There’s a free utility package from real.com that lets you download YouTube videos and convert them to other video formats to play on your computer. RealPlayer and RealConverter – for Macs or PCs.
Mike…such great encouragement…thanks….it is good to see and hear you speak instead of just reading your post….doing my first combo run/ride/run next weekend….it’s a start.
