Great photo in the CDT

Praise God!  What an awesome feeling I have today.  I got a call this morning that there was a photo of my son and I in the CDT from the end of "the run" last spring.  I've not been blogging in 3 months, but not because I haven't been thinking of JDRF or the challenges confronted everyday by all the diabetics.
I am amazed at the overwhelming emotion I feel today seeing my son so happy and showing the victory I so desire for all those stricken with diabetes.
I ran two trail marathons this fall and had a great time at both the Dam Full and the MegaTransect (only 25 miles, but a really hard 25).  I never wrote about the Mega and am somewhat disappointed in myself for not doing so.  The folks do an amazing job.    I have not been running consistently since the Mega, but have gained 20 pounds !  Is that a positive?   Not especially.  The cool part is that I still have new folks checking in every day.
This article in the CDT may be just the stimulus to get me out the door in the morning.  I still am harboring some dreams of 125 miles, or at least 24 hours on May 20-21.
Stay tuned.

More importantly, a week from now we will celebrate the birth of Christ our Savior.  Maybe you don't like hearing folks talk about the Reason for the Season, but listen to Linus quote Luke chapter 2.  Wow!  I haven't seen it in years and I get all trembly just thinking of it.

Thanks to all.  I am so thankful for the blessings I have been given.

Drop me a line.
