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

Ogden NUTS series 15k. 53:39. Another NUTS race, another time getting my butt whupped on the finishing kick. But by a different person at least.

The course is in Eden and is an semi-loop with gentle climbing the first half and equally gentle downhill the second half. So another negative-split course. I went out easy and picked off people over the first half and then shifted into high gear once I caught the downhill on the second half. I came up behind Tim Wight and worked off him for a couple miles until I finally caught him with about a mile to go. We worked together the last mile, which was nice, but when it came down to the kick, he had an extra gear that I didn't have, and I ended up in 4th by a second or two. Still a better kick than my previous NUTS races, so I feel okay about it. This was my first 15k ever, so technically a PR.
