Do you enjoy running when you’re traveling?
I definitely do–I think it’s one of the best ways to enjoy a city or town, while on foot, taking in the sights.
Several years ago I was visiting Columbus, Georgia. “The” place to run in Columbus is along the 15-mile Chattahoochee RiverWalk which is a beautiful path along the Chattahoochee River. You can see Alabama on the other side.
As I woke up to run one morning, I began my day with a devotion and the theme was focused on Psalm 119:105.
Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.Psalm 119:105
I arrived at the RiverWalk, and barely a mile into my run, I literally saw the light of the morning sunrise ahead, “a light on my path,” and snapped this photo.
I think inspiration is all around us, if our eyes and hearts are open to seeing and feeling it. And I look at running as a time to count my many blessings and thank God for them. #inspiredmiles
Another fun fact about the Chattahoochee RiverWalk: As you run on the Georgia side, you’re in the Eastern Time Zone, while the other side of the river in Alabama is an hour behind in the Central Time Zone.
