10K run

So this time next week I will be arriving in Mississippi getting ready to help rebuild houses! This makes me a bit nervous, mainly because I have NO carpentry skills whatsoever. I am going however, willing to help and willing to learn, willing to live and willing to serve God. Every mission needs funding though, and today I did my part. You might have a difficult time finding someone more out of shape then myself, and yet for some reason if you were walking down the lakefront trail in Toronto this afternoon, you may have seen me running. I ran 10 kilometers today! I thought it would kill me, or at least almost kill me. I was not expecting it to feel good! I should start jogging more often. I didn't officially "run" the whole way if you want to get technical, I would run until I didn't think I could run any more and then I would walk for a bit. I ran 5k into town and then turned around and walked back. Sarah met me at the 7k mark with Chinese food and then she finished the race with me. I have the best wife ever :). She knows the way to my heart.

Anyway, I'm falling asleep, possibly from running exhaustion, so I'm going to go. I'll keep everyone posted on further Mississippi trip details as the progress. cheers.


  1. I nearly choked on my coffee when I read about your wife meeting you with Chinese food! What a brilliant motivation!!!!

  2. lol, yep, she's a great motivator.
