Lone Star Trail Run

As usual I have found other things to do besides blog. No excuses just life.

In my last post I said I would start writing about stuff that had nothing to do with running, and I will, but not this time.

This weekend is the 25k trail run and I’m excited about running it. My training for it has been a disaster. I got sick and missed a week and when I started running again I had no energy for it. So I hadn’t run longer than 12 miles since February 4th.

Last week I started panicking. I don’t care if I run this race fast, but I at least want to be able to finish. So Monday morning I ran 12. It wasn’t a pretty 12 miles, but it was 12 and I felt like I could have plodded out four more if I had to.

So I think it will be cool to run in the woods.

My trip to Nepal in May is becoming more of a reality. I’ll talk more about that soon. Also there is weirdness going on in my world ... good weirdness, but weirdness none the less.

Run hard …

RTR:
Thanks for the comment on my post. See my response.

I too am a runner. I also am trying to develop a "conversational" relationship with God. (I am currently reading Willard's book.)
