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

30K Death Loop. Had a good group:Mike, Spencer, Seamus, and James, and myself. Very tough loop that goes around Horsetooth Reservoir, with a lot of climbing during the last half of the run. All 5 of us crashed pretty hard, but it was a good run. Averaged 6:50/mile overall.
