“Do you want extra “blank” with that order?.” Normally, I would probably turn down that extra “blank”, whatever it was. However, while training for the Northface Ultra-marathon, I found myself eating way more than I would ordinarily eat. I needed to eat more food to compensate for all the calories that were being burned up during the training runs. Before training for this event, I would estimate I would consume about 2000 to 2500 calories in a given day. During the training months, particularly during the end of training, getting close to race day, I estimated the intake doubled, to about 4000 calories. I would easily burn up about 2000 calories in a single 20-mile training run. During those training runs, I was reminded of how much spiritual food I was eating (or not eating) in my daily Christian walk. I also realized how much more I needed to spiritually eat to be obedient to God’s Word and His plan for my life.
