    Another Friday finally here! So excited for the challenge!! I need it! Yesterday I got right back on track. It was somewhat hard with my laziness but worth it to force myself out there.

    9/25/2015 8:36:39 AM, by PASTORJEFF2

    We’ve all had days (and maybe even years) when life just doesn’t seem to be going our way! I've had several of them lately and in my devotion time today I ran across this and thought I'd share it with you. 1. Remember that your Character should always be stronger than your Circumstances.

    9/25/2015 8:24:02 AM, by LDYHAZ

    Yesterday started off rough. DH husband had some 24 bug and of course this time of year he is refusing to slow down. I did my 4 mile run and came back and spoke my mind. I told him I would rather take him away and live on my retirement check then see him work himself into the ground. This is the ... Read more

    9/24/2015 11:24:17 PM, by PASTAFARIAN

    This Sunday, I'm doing the BVHM. (full name: D. Herlocker Memorial Bachman Valley HM) Admittedly, the name doesn't have much pizzaz but it's an excellent HM and I say that as a very sharp critic of HMs. This one does more things right than most. Almost everything! I wish other races would take ... Read more

    Friends are awesome. They're so quick to tell you the truth. My BFF's name is Lisa. And this morning, at breakfast, (she knows my story really well) she reminded me that people say dumb things. They have no clue how bad they're hurting someone, and the important thing for me to remember is that what... Read more

    Rolling into week one of BLC was tough for me, if I am being honest. While the death of my gramma was a challenge, it was some interesting stuff that followed that challenged me even more. There's something very difficult that happened to me a long time ago. I had to be in contact with someone ... Read more

    Getting back on's amazing how hard it can be to be kind to oneself. It's easy to hold myself to an unrealistic standard. It's hard for me to forgive myself and simply learn from experience. But that is what I'm trying to do. I'm trying to be active every day, regardless of rotating a... Read more
