You can help! Half-Staff Final Alert National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service Sunday, Oct. 9, 2016, Sunrise to Sunset

In honor of the firefighters that sacrifice their lives daily for our safety, I will be gathering donations (no tax breaks as I am just giving them cash to use however they wish (click the donate link above or click here)) to personally carry in my bag on my run while carrying the Cross and American Flag to our local fire station 46 Stone Oak, San Antonio, Texas tomorrow October the 9th 2016 along with a card where I will add the names of all those that donated.  I will also be posting updates on my Facebook page at Thank you! Blessings Rod.

67 firefighters lost their lives this year. Regrettably, this is one of the most overlooked half-staff memorials probably due to being held on a Sunday. I hope everyone will make a strong effort to comply with this important event honoring our firefighters. Please help spread the word.

This week presents opportunities for businesses, families, and communities to learn about ways to protect themselves in case of fire and helps raise awareness of steps we can all take to prevent fires. During Fire Prevention Week, we also pause to honor our first responders and firefighters, including those who have sacrificed their own lives to save the lives of people they had never met. Let us salute them and pay tribute to all firefighters whose bravery, sense of duty, and love of country make our Nation a stronger, safer place.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim October 9 through October 15, 2016, as Fire Prevention Week. On Sunday, October 9, 2016, in accordance with Public Law 107-51, the flag of the United States will be flown at half-staff at all Federal office buildings in honor of the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service. I call on all Americans to participate in this observance with appropriate programs and activities and by renewing their efforts to prevent fires and their tragic consequences.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this seventh day of October, in the year of our Lord two thousand sixteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-first. Source:

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:
