Wednesday, June 02, 2010      4 comments

I woke up a little late this morning and was planning on a shorter run because of it. Skies were a little overcast, but it actually felt kind of good outside, especially compared to the hot and humid mornings we've been having over the past few ... Read more

It's easy to think that we are we are in life simply because of our own efforts and energy. Of course, such a belief is not entirely accurate. Our lives are lived on the shoulders of those who have gone before us. It is because of the faithfulne... Read more

I don't usually like to get up too early on Saturdays. However, I knew that if I wanted to get a long run in this morning I would have to start relatively early. It was 58 degrees when I started and right at 78 degrees when i finished about 2 ho... Read more

After a long trip to Cape Girardeau yesterday, I am finally back home. Believe it or not I don't have anywhere else to go on Saturday! Thanks to all of you who prayed for my eldest daughter while she was getting her wisdom teeth taken out. She i... Read more
When they hurt
Thursday, May 27, 2010      2 comments

As a parent I have grown to understand how difficult it is to watch your child hurt, and then be helpless to do anything about it. Our oldest daughter is having her wisdom teeth taken out this morning. Like her dad, she doesn't care much for pai... Read more

Hello Humidity

It felt like July out there this morning. The air was soupy thick, and the heat was already building. It was nearly 80 degrees when I was outside running at 6 a.m. this morning. This is all part of living in mid-Mo. However, I was hoping f... Read more
Taking a day off
Sunday, May 23, 2010      2 comments

It's nice to take a day off from exercising every once in a while. As a runner, I find that my body responds well to taking days off from the high impact activity. Now I won't completely veg out today. My wife and I will probably go for a walk w... Read more
Thankful for the water
Saturday, May 22, 2010      2 comments

After a few nice springlike days, it looks like the beginning of summer heat is heading to mid-Mo. Highs in the upper 80's and low 90's are heading our way this weekend. I imagine our 7 year old will be begging us to get out the sprinkler this S... Read more
The Journey

Hotel Gyms
Wednesday, May 19, 2010      4 comments

I guess it's a good sign that many hotels are now offering fitness equipment facilities on their properties. I am sure this is a liability issue for some of them, but the demands and comfort of their guests obviously outweigh those concerns for ... Read more
