For Zach

I got in late tonight from work but was able to accomplish these four things: I chased down and hugged my kids, kissed my wife, changed clothes, and ran 3 ½ miles.  Not bad for a half hour’s work!  Yes, I accomplished all of these steps within a half hour (give or take a minute or two); no more excuses like “I didn’t have time” or “I got home too late.”  Not today….. 
Well, two thoughts consumed my mind all day: 1. what do I need to accomplish at work and 2. How is Zach Mayo doing?  Zach went in for surgery today.  Zach is a buddy of ours whom we’ve only met once or twice in person.  He is fighting the good fight and has already endured so much at such a young age.  We are praying for you Zach, always!  Go Team Mayo!
I grabbed a quick stretch and hopped on to my mechanic bull (treadmill) for what seemed to be a lightning fast run!  I set my speed to 7.2 mph/1 decree incline for the first 2 ¾ miles then bumped up the speed to 7.8 mph  for the last ¾ mile stretch…..    I completed my 3 ½ mile run in just 29:00 flat!  I didn’t think anything of it until after I uploaded my run data to Nike’s website: today’s run was my fastest 5K to date!  I received an auto-generated, pre-recorded video message from the Nike+ team…..  I couldn’t help but laugh inside (because I had beaten my previous road record by 3 seconds).  Oh the small victories….. 
Anyways, today’s run flew by but I couldn’t help and think about Zach and all of our Cancer Warriors; they are truly amazing kids!  God bless our Little Warriors ~ thanks for the visit!
PS: Dear Mother Nature, please send us a warm breeze so I can run outside….. 

Happy running and God bless! 2 Tim 4:7
