#21 is going to UGA!

After waiting patiently, Becca (aka #21) has selected the University of Georgia to attend in the fall of 2010. This has been a dream of #21 since her brother attended UGA from 2003-2007.

Among the colleges #21 considered were Auburn, Alabama, Mercer, George College, etc. But UGA was always on the top of her list.

Congratulations, Becca Boo! I’m proud of you!

UGA – Class of 2014 Rocks!

    Q2: What one thing do I lack?
    Q3: What one thing I need to let go?
    Q4: What is one promise I need to claim?
  2. Build Core Strength: Focus on Abs (aka gut and back fat) — Check!

Brooks ID Team

I received great news this week from Brooks Running Shoes that I have been selected to be a part of the Brooks ID Running Team for 2010.  Over the past 8 years I have purchased every name brand running shoe on the market, but Brooks has stood out as the best.

As you’ll see in the picture below I have a love for Brooks shoes.  Check out the Launch, ST4, Cascadia 5; Trance NXR, Adrenaline GTS 8 and 4s, etc.  Currently I’m using the Launch for mid to long runs, ST4 for tempo / interval training, and Cascadia 5 for Trail running.

The Brooks ID Program has a lot of cool benefits.  I feel fortunate to make the cut!  I will make Run Club USA proud.

Run Happy! Run in Brooks!

Zac’s Story

A story of courage, faith, hope, and love.

Yesterday NewSpring Church showed this video about Zac, his battle with cancer and his faith that God is God — no matter what.  I pray this may be used to both challenge and encourage you!
