Testimonies of Healing

Pain-free distance running

From the July 2024 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Healing comes at times when we need it most. We are never separate from God, divine Love, and this thought of God’s presence became clear to me one evening. 

I am an avid runner and have been for about three years. I enjoy the challenge, freedom, and joy that running brings me. When I first started, I tried not to give in to the common belief that as you run more, you feel more pain and discomfort. However, at one point, I began dealing with pain in my knees. 

I had begun training for not just one, but two ultramarathon races. (An ultramarathon is usually a trail race that goes farther than the 26.2 miles of a marathon.) I also planned to run a standard marathon in between the two ultramarathons, which were within two months of each other. The courses were up in a very high elevation, and I knew it would be a challenging few months of training in preparation.
