It was definitely cold this morning when I went out at 6 a.m. The weatherman said that it was about 18 degrees F with a wind chill of about 11. Still it wasn't too bad as long as the wind wasn't blowing in my face. It actually felt good to get o... Read more

Struggling in my own strength
Thursday, February 11, 2010      1 comments

All too often in my walk with the Lord, I try to live out my faith in my own power. It seems like I am a recovering control freak, who is not doing as well as he should. Allowing Him to lead is a struggle for me at times. I was always taught to ... Read more

In all honesty I was pulling for Peyton Manning and the Colts in yesterday's Super Bowl. However, I'm not heartbroken because they lost. Rather I am truly happy for some folks in New Orleans who have endured tremendous heartache over the past fe... Read more

Thanks to our county road crews and some sunshine, our streets were cleared enough so that I could actually get out for an afternoon run, and it felt good. However, this hospitable weather sounds like it will be short-lived as another storm head... Read more

It looks like we're in for so more fun weather here in mid-Mo this weekend. I was hoping to get a long run in tomorrow, but it doesn't look too likely with a nice little winter storm heading our way. Getting ready for a marathon by early April m... Read more
