Just saw something sad and disturbing. On 35 saw whay i assume a homeless man standing over a fresh animal kill with a large stick in his hand. The blood was bright red so it was fresh. Not sure if he chose this life or if unfortunate circumstances has him there. Started me to think about how we rush to get the latest and greatest for us and our kids. Ipads, iphones, big houses, nice cars, brand name clothes, $300 jeans and we still have the damn nerve to complain about what we don't have or cant do. Wow perspective
Ephesians 4:29 - Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. (NIV)

Im not a fast runner I am more of what you will call the middle of the pack runner but there are times when I do "open up" and I leave it on the pavement. There is an expression we say in the church leave it at the alter, leave your burdens and cares there. That is what I feel like when "I open up" and I leave it on the pavement. My breathing is in sync with my feet. My speed increases and I dont even realize it. My head is high and my chest is open. When I open up and leave it on the pavement, my mind is clear and Im not thinking of anything but I only feel the loving relationship between the bottom of my feet and the street. Each rhythmic step chimes in to keep me in line and focus. Nothing is heavy all my burdens are gone for that moment in time. My eyes are focused on nothing, but i am looking straight ahead. I have left it on the pavement. Be Blessed guys!

Bikram kicked my tail today!!! 2 people left half-way through and a hand full of others including me had to take extra savasanas.
It was bad enough that our instructor cracked the door open towards the end. i think someone set the thermostat to hotter then hell!
I am sore as heck but i think most of that is due to me running the last marathon. My IT band is sore and my hammys are tight. So that means more Bikram, more Bikram means more sweat. For now it hydrate and sleep cause hit ass yoga will do that to you.
So on to another week!

Today this scripture REIGNS today. I am so humbled and grateful I had to sit back and think about it. I completed 3 marathons in 56 days and 2 of them within 10 days of each other! All of this with hardly any recovery time, while working full time , taking care of home, promoting my business and still training. Once you start a goal that has been truly put on your heart and you turn it over don't tell me it can't be done. These runs were not great times but that was not my goal it was to finish! Yes, there was pain and emotion but I got it done. Ran my race and when I was hurting and made every reason to give up that is when I would dig deep and say Lord its on you, usually around mile 20. LOL! So Praise will be continually from my lips. Thank you Lord!

For me it was a true test of humbleness. I always race alone, well me and The Lord. There were times during this race I cried, I cussed, I prayed, I screamed, I lost focus and I wanted to just STOP because my hip was burning and I was tired because I had just gotten over a stomach virus on Sat!
It was during those times the word not ME but THEE struck my heart. It's times like this where if you saw me during the race at some points my arms were stretched out to the Father! Towards the end The Lord said dig deep I am carrying you!! You spoke my words from Isaiah and Hebrews now MOVE! Woolawd!! The pain never left my hip but I was able to keep moving. It was like Paul speaking in the torn in his side!! Be blessed all!!
RAW...yes raw! What is raw? In short eating raw is consuming uncooked nutrient dense living foods. Plants, sprouted beans, grains, fruits, veggies, raw nuts unprocessed while foods.
An example of a raw breakfast can consist of fruit, granola, protein shakes with almond milk. Organic peanut butter on Ezekiel bread.
Others foods you can eat guacamole, salas, pics de gallo, mango & a acorn chutney with raw veggies. Chickpeas on a bread of salad greens serves with lime juice and olive oil.
Although Greek yogurt is not raw I would add it in for the nutritional factor. Look I will do raw but I'm not totally 100% raw. I think for me raw day should be at least 85% raw day.
So lets try this together pick a day and make it Raw!!!!

Even though it was a small turnout they came! Even my mom showed up!!!! I brought my girls and so did another lady. There is no excuse! We walked, talked and the time flew by!
My passion is running and coaching. I love to run. I'm not the fastest or the best but I get it done. I love to coach and motivate others to get up and moving, to not be a statistic!
So for all you runners out there do something for someone else and make a difference. Sometimes it's not about your PB but about helping someone else making a heathy life their PB!
