Any experienced marathon runner will tell you: the first few miles are easy. You’re surrounded by cheering crowds, you’re proud of the runner’s number pinned to your chest, and you’re full of energy and enthusiasm. Then you get to mile nine and everything changes. Lactic acid starts building up in your muscles; you get thirsty; suddenly, the prospect of running a full twenty-six miles loses its appeal. Races are not only matters of skill, but of endurance; it’s no coincidence that Paul compares the Christian life to a race.
