Run in such a way that you may win.
Therefore I run in such a way, as not without aim;")

4. Exercise to maintain good health



(My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my saying. Do not let them depart from your sight; Keep them in the midst of your heart. For they are life to those who find them,
