I'm Back (Sorry for the Hiatus)

Well, life has a way of putting obstacles & challenges in our path; often times resulting in our having to take a detour. Although I have not posted lately, I have continued to push my boundaries in many ways (spiritually, mentally & physically).

I have begun to pray (3) rosaries a day. Our lives, our families, our communities & our world severely need prayers so despite the fact that I am busy, I am adding more to my plate in the spiritual sense.

Mentally I have added in one more book to read. I am now reading (3) books at once (Return from Tomorrow - George G. Ritchie, Awakening the Giant Within - Tony Robbins & now One Tough Marine - First Sergeant Donald Hamblen USMC & Major B.H. Norton USMC - retired). Regarding our mental boundaries, I do not believe that man has found them nor defined them. It is the basis for the mission statement for Know No Boundaries that "we determine our own boundaries or limitations".
We decide how we will react to any given situation, we decide what fork in the road we take or what path we walk & we decide to keep on keeping on or giving up.

In the physical arena, I am trying to keep my mileage up (despite the fact that I did not run in the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon this last Sunday).

Kudos to all who ran & who conquered!

Plans are underway for my "50 for 50" run this July. I am planning on running 50 miles on my 50th birthday. We will be starting the evening of July 10th & finishing up around noon on the 11th ( I was born then so I am told). In the mean time, I run, run, run & then run more. Then in October, K1 & I (K2) will be running the Heartland 100 in Cassoday, Kansas. I ran the 50 miler there (2) years ago so I know 1/2 of the course. I am really fired up friends.

Remember that as you go through your day & your life, keep in mind that there are many signs that if we are quiet enough & pay close enough attention, we can see where we need to go. Remember, God was not in the wind, or the fire, but in the ever so small whisper. Often times the direction that we need to go is right in front of us.
God Bless you;
