We Shall…

We Shall…

I started my day today joining other pastors and community members at our local ICE office. The office is located in a nondescript strip mall in Camarillo. There is no room for anyone to gather inside the office, so we gathered outside, in the rain. We shall overcome… Our gathering was not one of silence, […]

The Trouble With the Mini Out & Back – Boston Marathon Training, Week 13

  The simple out and back is the easiest run. You just go to the halfway point and turn around. But what about the mini out and back that is part of a longer run? Or the double out and back? For most people this is no big deal. For me? Well I seem to […]

Weak Links – Boston Marathon Training, Week 12

Last week I bought a new pair of running shoes, Brooks Launch. I may wear these in the Boston Marathon. I may wear my Saucony Ride. I have about 5 weeks to decide which pair. Five weeks of alternating between these two pairs of shoes. Five weeks until Boston! After I brought my new shoes […]

Rehearsal – Boston Marathon Training, Week 11

Six weeks until race day has me thinking of rehearsal. Do you rehearse? What did you think of with this question? Getting ready for a music performance? A play?

I had the following conversation with my best friend on Wednesday: Michele: How are you feeling? Me: Better, but my run today was horrible. Michele: Why? Are you still sick? Me: No… well, I think I’m at about 95%. It’s frustrating though because I did a threshold run today and it was way harder than […]

Quit Blaming the Kids

In the aftermath of an atrocity such as the massacre last week we enter into the Facebook and other social media debate. One unfortunate aspect of that debate inevitably is one that argues that the young people themselves are at fault…or if not the young people, then the culture around these young people.   I […]

Recovery – Boston Marathon Training Week 9

Well, I only lost two weeks of training due to illness (This Sucks! Boston Marathon Training Weeks 6, 7, & 8). According to my coach my setback is really just one week of training. I’m grateful for his perspective because as I was sitting sick, I was also stressing about Boston. Would I recover in […]

This Sucks! Boston Marathon Training Weeks 6, 7, & 8

Week 6 of my training for Boston was almost a perfect week. All my runs felt wonderful. I got in some quality hill work. My weekly miles were increasing nicely. I was doing very well with my strength program and working on increasing the mobility in my right ankle (this was supposed to be the […]
