This past Saturday was one week from the start of my 100 mile race. I had taken the majority of the week off and not run and decided to go out and run 6 miles. I soon cut it to 5 miles and felt like I was going to fall apart. It's crazy how my legs felt great until I began to run over a mile and then I felt the severity of the distance I covered a week earlier. I think this is true in life as well. We are damaged either by a relationship, a loss, circumstances and we think we heal much quicker than we do. So we jump back into a another relationship, ministry or new endeavor without ever having fully recovered and the results can be disastrous. The key is to take time to recover well and enter the next step with all pistons firing.

I ran 100.9 miles in 28hours, 45minutes and 13 seconds. It was one of the most incredible, difficult and most rewarding experiences of my life. I'm incredibly grateful to everyone who got me across that line. I wouldn't have wanted to try that alone. If you have yet to check it out, here is my story http://vimeo.com/102577781
