I’m wealthy in what matters💕 Thank you for being my [literal] crutch this past week. My bounce back wouldn’t be possible without you. I love you.

It wasn’t the race that I expected, but I didn’t let that defeat me. If anyone was tracking my progress, you could probably tell that around mile 9 something happened - my knee gave out. I could almost instantly feel something tear and my leg seized up. My body physically did not want to run, but I knew I needed to at least get to the 13 mile. I had Courtney and Cassie meet me ASAP and I took some pain killers and sprayed some biofreeze on my knee hoping that would numb the pain. I got to halfway and knew that I could either quit now or finish what I started. I was in excruciating pain pretty much the entire time and at some points didn’t know how I was going to finish. I could have been bitter about the circumstance, about losing my goal finish time. I could have been defeated that 9 months of training went out the window on mile 9 with something I could have never predicted. But if you were there or saw any pictures, I kept a positive attitude and smiled straight through the finish line. When I started my training, I wrote on my shoes, “I can do all things...26.2”. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Man, did I ever lean on him yesterday and did he ever show me just how strong and capable I can be when I’m tested. Thank you to everyone who celebrated with me, supported me, sent me encouraging words, prayed for me and with me. Your love has been overwhelming!💪🏼🏅🏃🏼‍♂️ #firstmarathon #icandoallthingsthroughchrist

It’s official! I run my first marathon tomorrow. I’m freaking out. This is my BIB number so you can track my progress through an app if you’d like😬 I don’t guarantee a very exciting race, no record breaking times, but this will be a personal milestone in my life. Love you guys💙

Three weeks out from my marathon and my long run is complete ✅ if you need me I’ll be sitting in an ice bath the next few days. #marathontraining #justtrain #hustlehart

My morning run today. Sponsored by Nike and this throwback tune👟✌🏼#whereisthelove

Just a boy and his baseball ⚾️ #tbt

Quick 5k pace run this morning. It sucked. What I’ve realized over the last six months is that there are just some days (and some runs) that the odds are stacked against you and the hardest part is finding the motivation to get out and get it done. The biggest thing I’ve learned since I started training for a marathon through all the setbacks, the PRs, the sore muscles, the progress, and the failures is that it’s all normal. And it’s all meant to be wonderful. I just continue to dig deep and tell myself that the progress is there even when it seems like it isn’t. What great deeds are in danger of remaining undone in your life because of fears that are looming over your future? Chances are if there’s a Goliath in front of you, then there’s a David inside of you. #marathontraining #hustlehart #justtrain #slayyourgoliath

When all you’ve wanted for months is a karate trophy and then one of your fav humans (shout-out Selena) shows up to church with one for you! Catch my paperback book that will be flying off the shelves titled: Random public bursts of karate nonsense that your wife is guaranteed to hate🥋🥇 #iknowkarate

The spelling. The verbiage. The randomness. I love everything about this🤹‍♂️

Pace Run + Uphill Sprints = ☠️ #marathontraining #40daysleft

A little Saturday night spiritual nourishment ✅ #pickmeup

I’m 48 days away from my marathon and losing most of August due to health problems really sucked for my training. September was supposed to be the month I tapered off on training before my race in October. Things change and stuff doesn’t always go as planned but my mindset needs to stay the same. So now September will be a month of grinding and digging deep so I can hit my goal. Amped up training, amped up diet, focused mindset. The dream only works when you do.
