Thank you, Joe. Very well said.
I struggle on a daily basis to keep "the world" from consuming more of my time than God. But I know he continues to watch over me and continues to place things in my path that force me to look to Him more and more and I'm grateful.
The Western States weekend as so much fun!! I felt blessed to be a part of such an event and to be able to watch the struggles of the men and women who took on the challenged of an extremely hard race on what turned out to be the 2nd hottest race in its history. One aid station reported a high of 106 at one point. And I must say, being a part of this event again has only strengthen my resolve to one day run a 100-miler myself.

That is very cool Joe. I have many of those kinds of thoughts as I do my runs...although...I have gotten away from them lately. Thanks for reminding me to stay alert for God's teachings as we go about our day...doing whatever it is we do.
