5K runner in training and tearing down strongholds.

     So, I used to be a track star. Well, not really a star. I was really good at the Hurdles and kinda OK at the 400 meter sprint.... and that was more than 15 years ago. In High School. Man, that last statement makes me feel really old. I was 18 and at the height of my physical fitness. I thought that I'd only get stronger. I was wrong. It's been 15 years since I've run on a regular basis. I've watched my biceps get smaller, my legs get weaker and my knees make funny noises. The final straw was a trip to the doctor a few months ago... and hearing the words "pre-diabetes" cast at me.      But God did not give us the spirit of fear.

Moral Monday, Raleigh, NC July 15th

       After work this Monday, instead of going straight home to my family or to the store to run an errand, ... I decided to see for myself what this thing was about-- this Moral Monday  protest that has been going on at the State Legislature for 11 week.

Trip to the Durham Bulls Athletic Park

      I don't think that anyone can deny that watching baseball at home on TV is pretty boring.. that is unless you have your own hot dog stand, funnel cake maker, ice cream machine and mascot. This week I proved that watching baseball in the stands with your family is fun.With family visiting for the week... we headed off to the Durham Bulls game Monday night against the Columbus Clippers.

Isaiah playing at the park

     So, Ethan has a little friend to play with for the week-- Isaiah. My brother-in-law and his family are visiting this week. These two are already having a blast.

Children's church 5th Sunday service

It's great being able to take pictures of my little buddy in the choir.      

First Trip to North Carolina's Coast- Wrightsville Beach

      It was a boys only weekend. My wife was away in Chicago to see her friends, so EJ and I hit the road. I figured since it's summer time it'd be the perfect opportunity to hit the beach... and it was. We got to Wrightsville beach 2-o'clock-ish. I drove around for about 15-20 minutes just to get a feel for the place and see where the best place was to park.
