Short-Term Running Goals:

It's been a challenging year so far since Boston 2011.  When I got home from Boston my world changed when I found out I had some pretty severe food allergies. Since being tested I have been focused on building my health back up which has been a long slow process. What a difference it's made and I feel extremely blessed. For years I knew something was wrong and it's amazing to finally know that food can actually be a persons medicine to live a healthy life. 

Long-Term Running Goals:

"You have to wonder at times what you're doing out there. Over the years, I've given myself a thousand reasons to keep running, but it always comes back to where it started. It comes down to self-satisfaction and a sense of achievement."
- Steve Prefontaine

I'm hoping to start building more miles when I can and be injury free.  Maybe one of these days I'll be fast. Just for now I'm just very happy to be running.

Personal:

Happily married to Marlin Ordway. We've got 4 grown children between the two of us.  It's been fun watching them go through life - making mistakes and picking themselves back up.  I love seeming them happy and succeeding.

When I got to the gym today it actually wasn't to busy.  Felt kind of bad for getting there later (8:00am).  There was a girl who got on the TM next to me.  Coudn't really figure out what she was doing.  She'd run like 5 -10 steps and then stop.  This went on for like 30 minutes. I wasn't sure if she was trying to do a speed workout or quite what she was doing. But, I was glad to do an extra mile.  Made sure to stretch afterwards.  I hope everyone has a great day!!!

Ellipitcal at home. Felt like I was in a hurry this morning.  Had a funeral to go to today, so I took a longer lunch at work.  A son of my mom's best friend passed away New Year's Eve. Not quite sure what happened.  Won't know for 6 weeks.  Just extremely sad.
