I just finished a goal that I really didn't think I would be able to do.
On Memorial Day, May 30, Joy and I established a goal to run 50 miles by July 1 ... our vacation. I had one month to run 50 miles. Fifty miles. FIFTY MILES.
At that point I had ran one 5k and probably had not ran 50 miles in my entire life.
But goals keep us motivated, thus we set the 50-mile run goal.
Tonight, I completed it. On June 27 my three-mile run tonight tipped the measuring stick to 51.5 miles since Memorial Day.
Feels so good to be getting healthy.

Confession: I didn't play much baseball growing up. I played summer league up until junior high. Never played school baseball.
Now I'm coaching. Why?
1. I want to be intentional about investing in my boys' lives. This is a great opportunity to spend more time together.
2. I want to be intentional about investing in my community. I want my 11 boys on my team to have the greatest season ever. That means they learn the game of baseball, learn teamwork, learn respect, and learn how to build some self confidence.
3. I get to build new relationships with some families and parents I would not have had the opportunity to meet. What a great way to build bridges into my community and into people's lives.
4. Coaching is a lot of fun. This age group of boys is in the learning stages of baseball, so you get to see great improvement over the season. It's rewarding to watch them get better over the summer season.
