Because Baker just had to.
They follow their nose. I suppose running after his big sister helped Baker feel supported in his boundary violation, being that Rose, a. Tuesday after Easter. Just another day.

But I have resurrection from the dead and salvation on my mind, more than on a usual day. He postponed our Easter meal, that newborn life. Swaddled in a crimson-colored kitchen towel, my husband. Come stroll the trails with me on our 44 acre Midwest horse farm where I seek God in the ordinary and always find Him--the Extraordinary--wooing, teaching, wowing me with Himself. Thanks for visiting. I hope you will be blessed! Your Name required. Your Email required. Your Message.

Also, I would wear racing shoes: I had a special pair of shoes set aside for races, designed to provide maximum support for my feet without adding unnecessary weight.
Some sports demand such light uniforms: Swimmers, like runners, wear very light outfits bathing suit, goggles, and a swim cap to compete. Other sports, like football and hockey, demand extra padding for protection, so their uniforms are heavy. Imagine an Olympic swimmer wearing a hockey uniform during a race. He would lose miserably!
Hockey equipment is not designed to float: it would drop to the bottom of the pool, dragging the person wearing it along. Hockey equipment is helpful when you are being body-checked or while blocking a slap shot, but it is worthless in a pool during the meter backstroke. So, how does this relate to the Christian walk? Many Christians fail to run or swim triumphantly through life because we overburden ourselves. We carry the weight of another lifestyle and expect to live successfully as Christians. Living victoriously in Christ, while clinging to worldly values about finances, relationships, etc.
Reflections of a Lay Catholic
You will drown! First, we must lay aside every encumbrance AND the sin which so easily entangles us. Some of us do well to avoid committing the big sins. We may not violate any of the Ten Commandments.
We avoid smoking and drinking. However, that is where we stop. We lay aside the sin, but we hold onto the encumbrances. We watch TV when we should be praying. We surf the Internet when we should be reading our Bibles. Even harmless entertainments can become encumbrances when they take priority in our lives. Many worldly values encumber us.
We are eager for more money so that we can buy more luxuries.
Instead, Scripture instructs us to learn contentment and use whatever God gives us for His glory 1 Timothy — We seek Dr. Second, we must run with endurance. Victory is not easy. The US Olympic hockey team—perhaps one of the most memorable gold medalist squads in Olympic history—did not cruise easily to victory. They had to grind our victory day after day and overcome fierce competition. The Soviet team was not willing to give the USA a gold medal on a silver platter. They had to earn victory. The apostle Paul did not write Romans 8 to armchair theologians who sat around drinking Perrier and discussing abstract ideas while growing rich off the stock market.
Few were wealthy.
Some would be slaughtered for their faith. Therefore, we must focus on our goal. We need to keep our eyes on Jesus.

Also, we must keep our eyes on our goal in heaven. In a memorable scene in the film Chariots of Fire, two sprinters, Harold Abrahams and Eric Liddell, are racing for the first time. As they approach the finish line, Abrahams glances to see where Liddell is. At that moment, Liddell passes him and wins the race. Instead of looking to the finish line, Abrahams looked away, thereby slowing his pace, and he regretted that simple mistake. We will not triumph spiritually if we focus on what others are doing. Neither will we triumph if we keep glancing over our shoulders at the past.
We must keep our eyes on the finish line, focussing on Jesus and our reward in heaven.

Look at the battles you are losing today. Maybe you are losing because you keep fighting the wrong battles. Maybe you are losing because you keep looking back at the lifestyle God called you out of.

Maybe you are losing because you carry excess emotional weight fear, bitterness, regret. Lay down your excess weights. Tear off the heavy clothes that keep you from running as you ought.
