April 21st 2010 Running Blog

"Run hard, be strong, think big!" -Percy Cerutty

Totally Bazaar Day!! For some reason I woke up hyper (not my character.) That being said, in all seriousness I told the girls, "Pack a lunch, we're not coming back till I do 20 miles then when we get back we're gonna clean and organize the garage, pick up the house and then I'm gonna iron the clothes your dad needs for the week, lets go." If that's not thinking big, I don't know what is! Somehow I was totally functioning in delusion, that's crazy?!? That being said, I did 11 miles and cleaned and organized the garage. That is defiantly a first!! How in the heck can I clean a garage after 11 miles??

But I must talk about this, its totally random and I don't understand why this would be a point of conversation but in light of my body suddenly being full of energy, I guess I'll talk about this too. While I was running this thought came to me (I've learned to not just throw random thoughts "out the window".) Anyway, it was a statement I heard many years ago and I can't even remember who said it? This is what I heard while running, "Everything that God ever created doesn't have a straight line, there is always some form of bend in His creation." Um...ok? I'm out running and I'm thinking, what does this have to do with anything? Well, I began to think about Gods creations; sky, land, water, creatures in this realm and in heaven. My ultimate conclusion was simply I have yet to know of the person that has visited every single aspect of Gods creation, therefore they have just put God in a box. How can you come up with that conclusion if you haven't even seen all of Gods creation? Alrighty then....weird, I know but its what I thought about while I was running 11 miles. The last mile was a cool down.

11 Miles :-)


  1. 11 miles?! That is amazing! You'll be ready to do a half marathon in no time!

  2. Great job on the run. I didn't totally understand the last paragraph, but man look how far you have come in such a short period of time. AWESOME!!!

  3. Steve- um, ya, I didn't understand it either?? haha that was just weird. I'm looking back on it and looking at all the mistakes. I ran at 12:30pm and it was very hot and also am very burnt = dumb! Maybe that had something to do with it? Note to self ~ Wear SUN BLOCK!! I'm too white to risk it :-p

    Quinn- Thanx sooo much!! Hows the accountabilty at 6am going?
