Ryan Hall Racing Himself



Topic: Pace

Bible: Philippians 3:13-14; 2 Timothy 4:17

Discussion starter:
Not many people on this planet can run a mile in 4 minutes and 42 seconds. The pace is just too much. (Even for 60 feet) Yet elite runners, like Ryan Hall, can run 26 of them in a row.

What’s the difference between you and Ryan Hall? There are lots of physical differences but one primary difference is in the daily choices he makes. In order to compete at the highest level he makes hundreds of decisions each day to train his body a certain way that others do not. There may be tens of thousands of people with bodies like Ryan’s capable of running a marathon at a world-class marathon pace, but there are very few willing to commit to the training and lifestyle necessary.

In Philippians 3 the Apostle Paul describes walking with Jesus in terms of a race. Most people would look at his life and be amazed at his pace. But he looks at his life and says, “Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”

3 questions:

  • Would you rather be the fastest sprinter or fastest marathoner in the world?
  • What is something you want to train to do?
  • How is the pace of your life right now? Is it too fast, too slow, or somewhere in the middle?

Chew on this:
As believers we don’t know how long our race is. So how can we pace ourselves so we don’t burn out?
