I have been contemplating these past few weeks on something that i could blog about. After trying a few ideas and not having them work out the way i wanted, i decided to check out a book to help me out. This book is called Running Anatomy. I have now decided that i want to discuss a few things about the human body as a runner, the physiology if you will, and compare it to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
One thing that I would like to start out with is this fact.... The human body is made up of about 60% water. We can all agree that there probably isn't anything better on a hot day than a cold class of ice water. It quenches our thirst and keeps our body functioning in the way it should be.
The energy burned when running produces heat, and it is by the mechanism of sweating that the core temperature is maintained; and we sweat from the fluids that we have taken into our body. So this points out that water is crucial for not only our running, but our survival as humans.
I would like to now compare water to the living water that the Savior talked about to the woman at the well.
