Monday, July 19, 2010      5 comments

This mornings run was a challenge for both my wife and I. With morning temps at about 80 degrees and a humidity that is about the same percent as the temps it was a struggle to get the run done this morning. I am sure that some of the folks who ... Read more

It was another oppressive morning here in mid-Mo. I was thankful to be able to get out early before the dangerous heat & humidity became a reality. Be sure to drink plenty of fluids as you go through your day.... Read more

Enjoyed a great run this morning, but I didn't really want to get out of bed to do it. However, once I got outside I felt fine. Does anyone else struggle with the battle of the sheets on certain early mornings? Hope your day is more than am... Read more

Had a great run this morning. My wife and I left the house together. We run different paths but in the same general area. It is always nice when we run by each other in the morning. Just seeing her reminds me how fortunate and blessed I am. She ... Read more

After a 15 mile run last week, I thought my long run today wouldn't be a problem. I made the mistake of starting a little later and the heat was already starting to climb when I had only been on the road for about an hour. While it wasn't really... Read more

Sometimes people make me wonder. Just because they didn't have the forethought to plan for something should not allow them to create a crisis and stress in the lives of others. Come on people don't wait till the last minute to ask for something ... Read more

We had a great time last night shooting off a few fireworks in our neighborhood. Of course, our display was rather pale in comparison to the shows put on by some of our neighbors that lasted until after midnight. Now comes the day after th... Read more
Where would we be?
Sunday, July 04, 2010      2 comments

It's hard for me to imagine what life would be like for many of us today without the uncommon sacrifice of a group of men and women who were willing to take some extraordinary risks for the sake of an ideal that they believed was essential. It w... Read more
