I need a tissue after that one. The beginning lagged, but the message here is so strong! I could see story book pages as I read it.
Good details showing the mind and efforts of a runner. Nice job. :)
I agree that this would be super with illustrations to go along with it. One grammar thing: Use a comma instead of a period inside the quotation marks in dialogue if the speaker tag follows the sentence. Thanks for the powerful reminder.
I like the way this story progressed and the conclusion was great. A great message well told. Please just put some spaces between paragraphs to make it more readable.

This really spoke to me today, right where I am. Truly spirit-filled writing. Thank You!
At first, I was disappointed with the impersonal "man", but as I saw the lovely parable emerge, the lump grew in my throat. Beautiful!

Wow. It took me a little time to get into the flow of this story, but it moved me greatly as I read on. I really enjoyed this, and it was a lesson--that the praise of men is nothing in God's eyes. Thank you!
