This post is much more like a “Tweet.” I ran across this story in the Charlotte Observer and, for someone who is trying to explore the relationship between running and faith, it was not only obligatory, but encouraging, inspirational, and emotional. It serves as yet another example of this mysterious relationship between running and faith. If you have other examples to share, please let me know.
For now, I hope you find this story (“Running for her Life“) about Stephanie “Pezz” Pezzullo a blessing. It is a story of pain and courage — and it is a story of running and faith. (I have repeated the link below.)
Here is glimpse, Pezz’ concluding remark:
“Romans 8:28 is my favorite verse. It says, ‘In all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to his purpose.’ It basically just means if I really feel I was called according to God’s purpose, that no matter what happens in this life, it can be turned around for good. And it has in so many ways.” If you take the time to read this story, you will how Pezz is using her story for good and why it is her wish that her story be used to help those who suffer to “heal through faith, trust and openness.”
