No time.

I don't have anything philosophical today.

Today was a blessing of life.

I chose to run some.  It didn't feel great.  In fact it felt quite awful for most of the time.  Random assorted pains,  stress about not being in very good shape, worry over a race that is a week away.  These things are like sponges that suck away energy and life and initiative.  

I really don't have the will to pay those debts.

So I'm not going to worry about how much I haven't run, all the things I failed to do perfectly, all the mistakes I made, the times I gave up, the slowness, the missed training plans, the goals that were never attained.

I'm just going to be thankful for being able to move around a bit today and be outside, and even get a bit sunburned.

There will be no worrying about tomorrow or yesterday or anything else.

Just savoring the blessing of today.

Great words to live by...
So funny that your wife ran the same race. It was so beautiful!

Proverbs 3:

5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
6 In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.

Hang in there.. Chin up.
