Friday Five: Exercise

I just got back from an 8 mile bike ride down the beach boardwalk near our home, and was struck with the number of people out enjoying physical activity. Runners, other cyclists, surfers, swimmers, dogwalkers, little kids on scooters....

It's easy to lose track of my physical self-care in the midst of flurried preparation for a final on-campus interview Monday for a college teaching position in the Midwest (prayers welcome!) and the family move that would accompany it. But each day that I do make time to walk or ride my bike it is such a stress reliever that it is well worth the time invested!

So how about you and your beautiful temple of the Holy Spirit?

1. What was your favorite sport or outdoor activity as a child?

2. P.E. class--heaven or the other place?

3. What is your favorite form of exercise now?

4. Do you like to work out solo or with a partner?

5. Inside or outside?

Bonus: Post a poem, scripture passage, quotation, song, etc. regarding the body or exercise.

  1. I made a splash over here, thanks for the reminder that our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit. I needed to hear that today!

    Sigh.

  16. While we spend a great deal of time on our fannies at General Convention, we do lots more walking that most of us manage on a daily basis. The Church Pension Fund is handing out pedometers. I plan to attach mine tomorrow - I'm taking this afternoon off.
    Are there any other RevGals at GC? We should find a time to say hey.

  17. I couldn't do it this morning (my 3 miles must have taken too much out of me), but I've done it now. Limerick and all!
