This has been an amazing week in my life. We are having a great Vacation Bible School — several of our students have crossed the line of faith — and we are having a great time learning and singing the songs. We have a great staff of volunteers, teachers, and assistants. It has been a wonderful week.
It has been a great week running-wise as well. Since I got stopped short of my 7 mile goal on Wednesday, I was determined to do what it took to get 7+ miles in today. A little cold front came through this morning, so it was cooler than the last few mornings and a welcome relief. I think that is one reason things went well. I can’t say that I struggled on any part of the 7 mile run this morning. One funny thing that happened was that I outran a garbage truck that was picking up garbage — I thought to myself — “Faster than a speeding garbage truck picking up garbage.” I am improving and this week I have really noticed that my overall speed is faster, and I have more endurance. This is so amazing. Who would have ever thought that when I started running eleven months ago, I would be running 7+ miles — definitely not me! Pressing On!
