This is a photo of the start and finish area of the 50k race I recently completed outside Fairbanks, Alaska. Much like the cover of a book, the start area forms the first impression of a race. But the total experience is so much more! This course was pleasant – a nice “walk on the woods”.
We say “Don’t judge a book by its cover” usually meaning not to judge a person based exclusively on a first impression. The same is true for experiences in life; imagine that God is waiting around every corner.
