Sprinters are amazing at short bursts of energy for a short period of time. However, if your vows were anything like ours they had something like “as long as life shall last” (until death do us part, forever, etc).

That is not a short period of time, that’s not until the next commercial break, or until this gets too hard.

Marathoners or distance runners know that they have to pace themselves.

They’re in it to run the race. For them to complete it they need know that…

  • Nutrition matters
  • Supporters are key
  • Planning makes a difference
  • Shoes and clothes will impact the results.

The same thing plays out in your marriage… instead of all of the different facets of a race, it’s knowing what is important for you to run the race.

These include your:

  • Emotional Intimacy
  • Physical Intimacy
  • Spiritual Intimacy
  • Recreational Intimacy
  • Financial Intimacy

In this week’s show Tony and Alisa talk about what’s you need to do to run the race as you view your marriage as a marathon not a sprint.
