Boston Avenue Methodist Church, Tulsa
Running has gone well with a total of  31 miles on the books this week. I'm hoping to finish this month out close to last months mileage which was around 143 total miles. I am looking forward to the Tulsa Run this weekend and seeing some running buddies and dear friends. This run will be a bit sentimental since the course goes through some of my old running trails. And as any runner knows those trails become familiar friends... The weather should be perfect and my running outfit has been tried and tested! The only thing I'm not prepared for are the hills which I have done zero, zip, nada, (or as they would say in Yiddish), bupkis, training for. This is a new course which I have not run. They changed the course a couple of years ago after finishing the BOK Center and added Boston Ave. at the end of the course which they tout as a "breathtaking finish." Well breathtaking it will be with a huge climb that starts around 7.25 and doesn't end until you are on the steps of the church crying for Jesus! Yep this should be fun, especially since I have no other plan other than to take it easy gut it out. Expect a race report soon after!

I have a friend who is doing the MCM in DC this weekend. I'd love to hear about your race plans for this weekend?

I love it when a really great song gets stuck in my head. This week it was this song (see video below). The song was in my head so much so, it became like prayer...I know so many people including myself that need the Saviors healing touch...weekly, daily, sometimes every moment. I know life can be tough in so many ways...rising above our circumstances can seem impossible at times. I hope you'll listen to the video and the words will also become a prayer from your heart and cause you to worship at the Well which never runs dry.
