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 made a critical decision that I think will help me maintain a somewhat decent marathon training plan and also prevent any further (and potentially serious) injury…Upon guidance from a friend, I modified my training plan and deleted a weekly maintenance run.This gives me an additional rest day after my long run day…We’ll see if I can get back on track and finish the full marathon in Sept (yes, we’re inside two months out).
Today’s run was a planned 5 mile workout and I was able to tolerate the heat this evening after work…I really need to get up early in the morning and knock out the runs but Ihave been having trouble sleeping lately…My allergies are acting up again and my circadian rhythm is off…I’ll need to get back on a morning workout cycle for sure…Also, my hydration plan hasn’t been all the great either.Lessons learned, for sure…I learned one thing for certain (a personal observation): blisters are much easier to run on after they pop (vs. when they are developing).I could still feel the sting, but I sucked it up and just ran…
5 @ 47:47 (9:34 pace). A comfortable run under a very hot sun…And, I worked on the tan…Take care.
Happy running and God bless!
