As I go throughout my daily living, I’m interested whenever I come upon something that reminds me of the temple. It could be as simple as something that recalls a temple ordinance, a principle that is taught in the temple, or even the temple architecture. As I read today in Runner’s World
magazine, the story “Moving Comfort
,” from the February 2011 issue, had an impression on me.
A little background. I’m a runner. I started running back in June of 2009, and have only stopped occasionally for sickness or injury (got the flu once, probably H1N1, and Achilles tendinitis). Since that time I’ve logged 723 miles in 193 runs, and just recently surpassed 100,000 calories burned. Last year I ran the Utah Valley Half Marathon in 2:06, and am planning on the Shamrock Half Marathon next month, and hopefully the Utah Valley Marathon in June.
