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!

Getting back in the Saddle
Very tough run….. My 4-yr old has been battling mild fevers and has a bad cough (hopefully we can avoid a hospital stay). I had to take care of some stuff at work last night after dinner, got home at midnight, and was back in around 6:30am. I am definitely “Running on Empty” for sure, with about 5-6 hours of sleep in the past 48 hours. I learned today that my oldest son knows how to whistle; where has time gone?
Splits: #1 8:26 #2 8:28 #3 8:54 < gas light on #4 9:27 < gas tank empty
4 @ 35:15 (8:49 pace). It was definitely hot, and I think I was a bit dehydrated….. I need to stay ahead on hydration tomorrow for sure. Lesson for today: get plenty of rest, stay hydrated and avoid overworking yourself!
Happy running and God bless! "Fight the good fight, finish the race, and always keep faith"
