Becoming Your Destiny
I had many conversations with people yesterday about their futures. I do not know it all by any means but I believe in the principle of getting back up when you fall. I remember the horrible feelings of our car accident in Nov 30, 2007. I had 3 months where I quit running and gave up on everything and everyone. It accomplished nothing. I learned a new outlook from that devastating experience. I learned that if I was going to do any good in this community it wouldn't be from sitting on the couch and feeling sorry for myself. My outlook changed quickly again when I looked at my two small children. Realizing that I can not lead by example by doing nothing. So in a brief moment of time, I stood up, and took off running. So far even with small set backs I haven't turned back yet. I am not perfect by any means but I do know that we can't get to any one destination by standing in one place! We all have a destiny out there and it is up to us to go claim it!

Here is a snippet of the article.

Today's Miles for Miracles Training
Today's run is 6 miles easy. Nothing fancy just running 6 stress free and easy miles. I ran them again at an 8 minute mile pace like instructed. It was a wonderful day to be out there and felt really warm. Of course when your used to running in -13 to 0 weather anything feels warm!
Go get your destiny, and keep on running!
