Endure and persist; this pain will turn to your good. - Ovid

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. - Romans 5:1-5

NCAA DI Regionals is in Fort Collins today (right now actually). The course is literally right behind my office, and I could watch the race from our parking lot or from our upstairs window. So I did. Awesome awesome day for a xc regional meet. Made me wax nostalgic for those days.
