What can I say? I love to run. I've run 4 full marathons and 6 halfs. But I love God more and I'm determined to run this race of life for Him to receive the ultimate prize of Heaven. I'd like to share my thoughts with you. You can agree or disagree. Comment or don't. You can read or not read. But it's here if you want it. Enjoy! .

Milkshake AND Ice Cream


Ok, I was told by my one reader today that I need to post and he's right. I'm really sorry, one reader. I hate to use the busy excuse again, but it really is true. It's a good busy and a fun one but it doesn't allow me to sit down at the computer for any length of time. But today is different. This is labor day weekend and we are in Chattanooga, TN on a quick family getaway. We went to the Aquarium today, did a behind-the-scenes tour, and just enjoyed downtown Chattanooga. It really is a nice city. Its downtown is so much cleaner than Nashville's. Sorry hometown. However, it's taking a toll on my eating habits, not that I really had any. But I had a butterscotch milkshake for lunch today (my favorite milkshake flavor) and then Coldstone ice cream tonight. But it's too hard to eat well when you are on "vacation", right? Right!

Ok, running news....My first 10K is next Saturday. One week. I really am just using this as a fun run. I'm not trying to prove anything here. I mean I'll run it and try my hardest but I'm not going to be disappointed whatever happens. It begins at 7AM next Saturday in Murfreesboro which is about a 30 min. drive. Plus, I have to pick up my packet that morning so I'll basically be getting up around 5AM. Fun, fun. But I'll try to post again on Saturday with a race report.

My foot hurts. I cannot seem to get myself injury free. When one thing heals, another hurts. This time it's my left foot. I have pain in the front inside of my foot. It's mainly bad in the morning or when I haven't moved it for a while. And I can still run on it, not that I should. But it doesn't hurt while running which is strange. I'm not running today or tomorrow so maybe that'll give it a little time to get better. I am supposed to do a long run tomorrow but since we're out of town, I was going to save it for Monday (Labor Day). Not sure if I'll do it or not.

In other running news, I absolutely love coaching high school cross country. Love it. My team is awesome. There is no other word. I love these guys and girls. And I can't wait for the competitions to start. We have our first meet on Tuesday of this week. It's a practice meet, but we're going to use it to see what we can do so I'll post about that too next weekend. Our first real meet is Sept. 14. Both teams have the potential to do really well, especially my guys. It's a lot of work and responsibility, but I still love it and I especially love playing Ultimate Frisbee on Fridays with them. I look forward to it every week.

Well, that's about it for now. Hope that will satisfy for a few days. I promise to try to do better. Hope everyone (one reader) is doing well.

Keep runnin',

  1. You have more than one reader :)! I'm glad you posted. I know what you mean about the whole eating good on vacation as I just returned from Disneyland...Ugh, back to reality.

    Hope the foot starts feeling better soon and that your 10K is a huge success.

    So glad that you're loving coaching cross country!
