Pain in the Legs = An Extra Day Off

Thursday, February 03, 2011      1 comments

I've been at a conference the last few days and doing quite a bit of walking in dress shoes. Not a good idea. This combined with the increased load of running from the "Couch Potato to 5K" program has caused a fair amount of discomfort, not real... Read more

Prayer & the Peace of Christ

Wednesday, February 02, 2011      2 comments

I've been at a conference for pastors over the last few days, the subject was prayer. As Christians we don't think of prayer merely as an activity or duty or a way to get things from God. We see it as a way of walking with God, communing with hi... Read more

Last night my wife and I were scheduled to be at a friend's house but we didn't get the memo that dinner was involved. So we went out to eat and had a wonderful time, even though we were very tired, and headed on over. Boy were we surprised to s... Read more

Jogged at 6.0 mph Yesterday

Wednesday, January 26, 2011      2 comments

I'm new to jogging/running so I decided to start out slow at a pace that I could maintain over time. I settled in at 4.5 for the first few weeks, which is barely past the "crawl" stage I know but it worked for me! Then I crept up to 4.8 and then... Read more
