Things to beat

Bring it Posted by Hello
I fit 14 full napkins in my mouth
I got six hits running completely around the table while playing ping pong by myself
I slept for 18 hours straight

That's It For Now...

Quick Thoughts

PERSPECTIVE: Adam Thada ran the half marathon faster than me but his response to my praise was this: Good Job! That means that you ran just as hard for that much longer than me. You're Amazing!

Am i the only one who doesn't feel that excited to vote for Bush or Kerry?!? That i am almost settling either way?

The culture says: To Live is Gain and To Die is Christ!
God said through Paul: To live is Christ and to Die is gain!
Can we do anything about that?

So what have i been up to?

A LOT!!! This last weekend(Oct 8-9) i hiked the Knobstone Trail which was a 45 mile hike in 21 hours through the night and day. To see more pictures and a description of the hike and trail go to this sight

FUNNY STORY: "And God humbled Me" About 4 miles into the hike i was leading the group and i felt fresh and ready to hike. So at the top of my lungs i half seriously half emphatically said,"Whoo! Give me a challenge" No exaggeration... 3 steps later i am rolling down the hill in the dark. God somehow kicked a stick in the road that caught my shoe and took me out. Not to mention everybody else was laughting and knew i deserved it.

This is the 45.24 club pretty much saying WHATUP!!! you see that mountain behind me... yeah walked like 20 of those today!

God has blown me away

I am the dorm chaplain for Hodson Hall this year. For our Hall Devotions we had a "lust and pizza night" where Professor Dave Smith who definitely reminds me of Agent Smith (see below)

came and spoke to us about our struggles. So i was expecting 30 or so guys...75-90 showed up and pack in this small room! God definitely spoke through Dave and I have been blown away by how much the guys in my hall actually desire to make a difference for the Lord and to know him better! Praise the Lord!

Free Time!!

I've been playing a lot of Ping Pong

Free Time also equals
HALO! You can hook up 16 players to one game over the internet/network. Here's four guys from the floor playing!

Hodson Scotsmen!

My Dorm dresses up as Scotsmen and we go to our home soccer games with shields, torches, and swords cheering like mad men! We do a push up for every goal we score and hackle the other team... IT's Great!

Ahhh- jogging buddy Posted by Hello
THis is Jon. He wakes me up on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays to go running 2-3 miles with him

Three Weekends Ago...

I went to Dayton Ohio and ran a half marathon with 6 friends. I ran a half last year and burnt myself out so although i was in worse shape, i paced myself and bettered my time by averaging just under 8 minute miles!!!

Reminiscing on the Summer

One thing that i did this summer that was amazingly lucky was i picked up an 8-10 spare! It was amazing.

Another thing that was awesome was i chipped in my first golf shot from like 20 feet away! i also had my longest putt out of the rough from about 15 feet away on a par three course!
