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

Got a good start on the month. Ran the dog around the block before church, and then ran the Planet Walk in the afternoon with Seth.

Wow, what an amazingly nice morning, sunny and also 50 degrees. I ran the dog around the block, and then ran to First Dam and back. 7:11/mile average pace. It's a lot easier to get motivated to run when the weather is like this.

Ran with Cody this morning. We did an out-and-back to First Dam, and 8x3-minute fartlek with 1-minute recovery. I just tried to stay with Cody and not get dropped too often. Kept it as a true fartlek ("speed-play"), and didn't look at my watch the entire time. It was a nice morning; wet roads but no ice or precipitation, a relief after seeing the rain and snow last night. 6:30/mile average pace for the run.

After a wild night in Vegas, we drove to King City, CA to see Stacy's folks. I was planning on running in Vegas in morning, but Seth was up most the night, so I ended up waiting until evening in King City to run. Glad I did; it was beautiful. I found a regional park with dirt trails, and ran around there, and explored a little bit of town too. It is very lush and green here, with rolling hills. Temps in the upper 50s.
