Seeking Prayer Support
Tuesday, December 29, 2009      1 comments

I will be spending a couple of hours this evening with some Middle Schoolers. Since I have primarily been working with adults for the past six years, this may be a little challenging. Believe it or not, I am looking forward to spending some time... Read more
Trying to Relax a little..
Monday, December 28, 2009      0 comments

We were able to get to our hometown to see both my parents and my mother-in-law today. Our girls were able to spend some time with their grandparents. Now we don't have to travel for a couple of days. Hopefully, we can begin to relax a little. I... Read more
Enjoying the weekend
Sunday, December 27, 2009      0 comments

Hopefully, you've been able to enjoy your Christmas weekend. Our family has been able to relax and simply hang out together. Of course, with my wife and two girls that usually means there is shopping involved. Although I'm not a fan of that acti... Read more
Missing the long run
Saturday, December 26, 2009      2 comments

Saturday is usually my day for a long run. Due to our rather cold and snowy weather, I will have to do something else today. Fortunately, I still have several months before the marathon. I don't want to risk an injury by running on slick roads. ... Read more
A Rare Morning

Like many of you our family usually travels to see relatives during the Christmas holiday. While we will still take the time next week to visit family members in our hometown, we are experiencing something rather rare this year. We are staying h... Read more
Let it Snow...
Thursday, December 24, 2009      2 comments

Look's like the snow is heading to mid-Mo. It probably won't be the storm that our forecasters have been yelling about, but it will probably be enough to give us a white Christmas and cause at least a few travel headaches. Hopefully, this ... Read more
Overcoming the Blah...

Today is just one of those days. Here in mid-mo it's rather gloomy outside. Thunderstorms have invaded our part of the country, which is extremely rare for this time of the year. With an impending snow event on our doorstep, we are preparing for... Read more

Just one more day of work tomorrow, and then it's time to take some time away from the office and hang out with the family. Like many of you I am anxiously looking forward to the holidays and getting out of the office. Hopefully, each of yo... Read more
Running in the dark
Monday, December 21, 2009      1 comments

Trying to keep on track with the running program that I have begun a few weeks ago, has pushed me more than I expected. I guess I had become comfortable with my 6-8 mile runs five to six days a week. Now I have shortened my week day runs, so tha... Read more
Ready for some warmer weather
Sunday, December 20, 2009      1 comments

Perhaps, I should just relax and get used to it. December in Missouri can be rather unpredictable. One day it's 55, and the next day it's 15 with 3 inches of snow on the ground. I guess if I really wanted warmer weather, my family and I would mo... Read more
Brutal Run
Saturday, December 19, 2009      0 comments

It started off innocently enough. The temp was in the mid 20's as I headed out for my long Saturday run. However, before it was over, the temps had dropped, snow flurries were falling and the wind began to pick up. Fortunately, I was able to ma... Read more
Running in the Snow?
Friday, December 18, 2009      2 comments

Wow! After temps in the upper 40's yesterday, it's snowing here in Mid-Mo. I was fortunate enough to get in a nice run this morning, and then the snow started at about 10:30 a.m. It's beautiful to watch, especially since the ground is so warm, a... Read more
What a difference a day makes
Thursday, December 17, 2009      0 comments

After running in near Arctic conditions here in the Midwest, it was great to get out and get in a run in this morning with the temperature near 30 degrees F. However, this warmer December weather may be short-lived since the weatherman is callin... Read more
Frigid Run
Tuesday, December 15, 2009      1 comments

I believe that I tested my limits this morning on the run. It was about 13 degrees with a wind chill just over zero when I left the house this morning. Of course, as long as I wasn't running directly into the wind, it wasn't that bad. Actually, ... Read more
The Challenge of Stress
Monday, December 14, 2009      0 comments

I would greatly appreciate your prayers today. Our team at work is going through a major change. One of our members is being shifted to another department in our ministry, and this is going to cause some significant stress upon our team. We are ... Read more
