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

Sharin O The Green 5K. Perfect morning: low 40s, sunny and no wind at race time. I tried to take it out fairly conservative and make sure I ran within my fitness level. Started out in 6-7 place for the 1st mile, moved up into 4th during Mile 2, and dropped the folks behind my during the last mile. Tried to catch up to 3rd, but the 3rd place guy surged hard and ended up 2nd, whereas I died off the last 600m, so never really got close to him.

Much better race than the 4-miler last month, and I was 2 seconds faster than last year at this same race (although last year was a little windy). So a step forward in any case.

Mile splits were 5:00, 5:06, 5:03.

Canyonlands next week!
