The purpose of this blog is simply “tell the story” of how running, relationships, and striving to serve my Maker have blessed my life more abundantly than I could have ever imagined. I would like to feature the special moments and amazing people that have enriched and inspired me. I suppose some will be drawn to this for information about races or running tips. Others may want to learn more of Run4Water and the clean water ministry. More than anything I hope these simple words can in some small way enrich your life and inspire you to “be the good”!
Following his footsteps:
I have enjoyed running for as long as I can remember. I must credit my father for introducing me to self discipline (essential for the true runner). I often remember phrases like “son, you finish what you start” or something similar to one of my favorite quotes “if you are carrying all the feathers you can carry you can always carry one more”.
My father, either through example or the DNA he contributed (probably some of both), is my ultimate inspiration. Often times in a ultra marathon when the voices of defeat become deafening my father’s voice of strength and perseverance speaks louder. I am eternally grateful for his example of humility, strength and kind spirit. I only hope and pray that the virtues I have witnessed in his life will one day be evident in mine.
