Remembering 9/11 15 years later

We must never forget those lives that were lost as well as those first responders that saved many and lost some of their own.  Here is a video that many may have not seen or even thought about these heroes that moved over half a million people in less than 9 hours:

My Last Ultra Trail Race

Na not really but that’s how I feel after back to back races starting August 20th a 100 mile trail race starting at noon with a 30 hour limit in Cat Springs, Texas near Houston (The Habanero Hundred) put on by Trail Racing Over Texas (TROT).


The 100 miler was my second attempt this year. Earlier in the year I attempted the Rocky Raccoon in Huntsville, Texas making it as far as 80 miles in 18 hours but that doesn’t matter I DNF’d (did not finish).  And this one I DNF’d too at mile 37. Oh well I take them as learning/training runs. They were both challenging since the temperatures were extreme on both ends one being 33 degrees and the other over 90 with very high humidity. The main thing is to have fun, get to know your fellow runners and staff as well as the volunteers! That’s what makes it all worth it. Just know as many races as I have ran you need to understand that you are racing against yourself. When you are satisfied with your performance that’s all that really matters.


And Saturdays 60K night trail race start at 7pm with a 12 hour limit in Burnet, Texas NW of Austin (CAPT’N KARL’s) put on by Tejas Trails.

Both races were a challenge to say the least! I only finished one of them – guess which one? Umm Yeap the 60K. But let me tell you that was one tough course. Lots of rocks that love to tap me on my toes…
Oh yea and the sprained ankle at mile 27 which was the rocks fault lol at the top (with a so called name of the Dome) kinda cool up there though sort of like enchanted rock near Fredericksburg, Texas. Here’s a quick video:

On this day… after you lose a loved one

On this day 66 years ago my Mom and Uncle Phil were born.  My Mom passed away in a helicopter crash in 1990 at the age of 40 (click here for the story I wrote 2 years ago).  And just 3 years ago my Moms twin brother my Uncle Phil passed away with cancer.  As my faith has increased over these years, when days like this make their way back round I am not sad but happy they are in a better place.  But when the day comes of my passing I will ask them why they left so early lol (slackers).  But you know God has a calling for us all and when our work has been done we will be called away.

So… I just happen to get on Facebook and this video comes up – so Godsend!  Living Proof Ministries with Beth Moore expresses that after you lose a loved one, it is so important to cherish those whom you still have in your life.  Here is the video:

Stop!

Open your eyes and ears… Don’t you see.. Don’t you hear… The devil is at work here! As I am being attacked he is trying to keep me from sharing the good news. The devil wants you on his team. You do know that the devil was an angel right… 

I pray that whoever is reading this message is saved. By that I mean you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. If not saved, you may not see past these short days before you are… Umm well gone is the word I will use. The bible is more in detail as to what will happen. 

Read the word, stay focused on God, and love your neighbor as yourself. 

If you have not received Jesus Christ as your lord and savior, simply ask him into your heart.

Study these verses:

“that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.””

Pray for our Pastors

Our pastors are human too and struggle with the same things we do.  We must pray for them as well as our leaders (Pray for All Men).  This was posted by Pastor Greg Locke:

The Coming Fourth Reich by Pastor John Hagee

Wow what a strong message today by Pastor John Hagee I just have to share.  This sermon series will soon be available to purchase for those interested on the JHM.org website.  The opening verses follow:

“And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.”

‭‭Revelation‬ ‭19:19-20‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Here is the opening video:

 

Here is the full sermon from today which can be accessed on the JHM Facebook page too:

REI Passage 1 Tent

Just purchased this tent from REI and set it up fairly quickly. Seems to be a great place to lay my head during next weeks 100 mile trail race near Houston, Texas Habenero Hundred.

Here are some quick tips:

One thing I left out was the extra rod which goes above your head on the outside which helps expand the tent.
