Well gang I had a great run for my first official day. If you are one of my virtual companions you'll want to know that today we ran at the UT Tyler campus for 31 minutes. It had looked like rain earlier in the day but by about 4 pm it was clear to partly cloudy "with a chance of meatballs"!! We ran in and out of the nature trail that winds through the woods along university headed toward the main entrance to UT Tyler.

It appeared that the UT baseball team was having a practice as we ran by the back of the baseball field. Occasionally I see criters as I run through the woods but it was pretty quiet today. I often reflect on the day as I run and visit with God along the way. God seems to share some of his best stuff while I'm "runnin' and sweatin' " I suppose Our Lord likes the idea that as I run I'm a bit more aware that every breath I take is a gift from Him. It has been a very busy and stressfull week but a good run always seems to help. God bless. I encourage you to get out there and exercise. Whatever form it takes exercise that gets the heart rate going is A GOOD THING. See you tomorrow for DAY 2.
