Over the course of my life, I've suffered through two knee surgeries, three episodes with kidney stones, dislocated my shoulder twice, bruised my ribs, and suffered a broken arm and foot.
My son battled cancer and received a life-saving liver transplant at a very young age. I feel at times, that I am running on empty. Through your thoughts, prayers, and encouragement I find the fuel that I need to keep going.
Thank you for taking the time out of your day to visit my blog. Take care, stay safe and God bless!

I hit another milestone today: monthly mileage PR of 108.5 miles (pictured below)!My previous monthly best was set back in March 2010 with 86.5 miles…..I have some big runs set for April and may be on track to set another monthly PR then (pending injury etc).

It was snowing all day (the non-stick variety) and today’s run was cold.Thankfully it was a short maintenance run of only 4 miles.I thought about extending another mile but I was tired.I pushed it today and kept a decent pace for the first three miles.My splits:
4 miles @ 32:47 (8:10 pace).I was getting tired fast and realized that my body was not meant for speed over long distances.For some this is not fast, but for me this is a decent pace.At some point I will need to incorporate some speed-work to practice for my 1.5 mile run test.I would like to run a sub 10-minute mile and a half…..Or better.My 1.5 mile PR is 9:17 set back in 1997.I doubt that I will ever beat that!But, records were meant to be broken!
Take care, thanks for the visit and be safe!
Happy running and God bless! "Fight the good fight, finish the race, and always keep faith"
