Thanks for the encouragement, friends! I really do appreciate you all! Your comments helped me! Yesterday was like the most stressful day I've had in the ministry in years! Seems like everything is coming at me at once! Sometimes I feel like the guy on the Ed Sullivan show spinning the plates! Needless to say running wasn't in the cards yesterday. I don't want to jinx myself but my heel is feeling real good?!?!
I woke up feeling very rested, too!? So I headed out for another day on the hills and enjoyed myself immensely! 12.5 miles/ 2:22:45/ 11:25's. Yes the pace appears slow but the number and intensity of the hills will cause a decrease in pace speed. I am wondering how I will perform come marathon day. The route is basically flat! Today I'm better...thanks again. I intend to cut back a little this week.
On another note, this pastor/runner is speaking this afternoon at the annual association meeting. What this means is a bunch of pastors will be there and I get to talk to them about leadership! I'm excited! Hope you have a great day!! I know some of you all are closing in on your big race! Good luck and best wishes to Marlene, and Meg! Hope I didn't forget anybody! Peace!!

You are going to feel so strong (and fast!) on the flats after training on all of these hills.

Hope the meeting goes well!

Thanks for the shout-out and all of your support this summer. Reading comments like yours helps keep me going!
