Another Blustery Day

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

Yesterday the wind in the Twin Cities was unbelievable and it didn't let up all night. It's still blowing like mad, which is kind of fun to watch, but makes it impossible for me to bike. So I'll thank God for another day of rest and try to get lots done so that if the weather breaks tomorrow or the next day I'll be able to devote significant time to riding.

Hope you all have a great day!

With cold, wind, and rain it will be hard to ride this week

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

I want so badly to get 99 more miles in on the road this year! That would mean that I've ridden my bike for a total of 5000 miles in the last two years. But the problem is that it's cold, windy, and raining--and might even be snowing a bit--this week. Thursday through Saturday look like they're going to be nicer days but my time will be somewhat limited so we'll have to see how things go.

Where there's a will, there's a way! One way or the other I will find a way.

By the way, the reason this feels pressing to me when there's still a couple of months to go in this year is that I normally take Nov and Dec off my bike completely so as to mix up my training and not burn out on my favorite sport. So according to the plan, Sunday is supposed to be my last day on the bike. We'll have to see how it goes.

    So close to your goal! Be a shame not to make it.

Enjoying a day off

Monday, October 25, 2010

It's been a good but very busy week for me (my week goes from Tuesday to Sunday, with Monday off). I'm so tired but I get to do a bunch of nothing today and for that I'm very grateful to the Lord! So I look forward to laying around, watching a few things, eating some good, healthy foods, and preparing myself for another week of fruitful service to the Lord and his church.

Hope you have a great day.

    A time to work and a time to rest...sounds like a good plan to me! Enjoy!

I'm So Tired!

Sunday, October 24, 2010

I rarely get this tired. I'm literally having to strain to keep my eyes open as I write this! I've been at a men's retreat this weekend with our church which was great, but all the activity has made me very, very tired.

So off I go to la la land!

Back from the Retreat

Saturday, October 23, 2010

We had a great men's retreat this weekend, we talked about the nature and implications of holiness for our lives and then dedicated ourselves to loving Jesus because he first loved us. I feel so inspired to live all my days for the glory of Christ and I'm so grateful for the men who were there with me and feel the same.

Thanks, Lord!
