Misplaced priorities

I was reading some of the blogs in the RBF about looking back at the past year and assessing how people judged themselves versus their goals. I think I've been pretty good about my running this year (and last year). I've been sick twice, but each time climbed back on the trail and kept going. One thing I've noticed though is that I always seem to make time for running and what-not, but have not been very good with regards to spiritual matters - which are more important.

I think if I have the time to go running and get my things ready for the run, then I should have time to say a Rosary or read the Bible a bit. I go to Mass each week (I wish I could go to daily Mass), but I feel I've been sort of just going through the motions - go to confession, go to Mass, etc. It is Lent and thus it's a good time for self-assessment - seeing how we're doing living. On a good note, we got rid of TV entirely (the only thing we watch is movies we get from NetFlix - no broadcast anything). I can honestly say giving up TV was a great choice.

On a more running focused note, my long run went decently today. I headed out to the Wheat Ridge Greenbelt trail (again!) for my run. It was pretty nice out today - mid 60's, with light winds. Unfortunately, those light winds became strong winds after I turned around, and the strong headwind messed with my run somewhat. I definitely slowed down my pace for the last 4 miles or so. All in all though I was quite happy as I ran my 9 miles at a sub 9 min/mi pace. I think I may have been a little to excited yesterday and should have tempered my speed a little better last evening. Oh well, things to fix for next week.

No runs tomorrow - just playing with the baby in the pool...

Run Summary
Distance: 9 mi
Pace: 8:52 min/mi (woo-hoo! Sub two hour half marathon? Who knows!)
Time: 1:19:48 hours (79 minutes and 48 seconds). Would have done better but strong 20 mph headwind during last half of run. Stupid northerlies that shifted to westerlies...

    Get rid of TV? I'd like to, but I don't think I could do it entirely. I rely on it for the weather every morning. Aside from that, very little. I've never had cable, so giving that up is no problem for me.

    I haven't gotten into it, but picking up faith again in 2005 has really been helping me. My wife and I decided to finally buckle down and find a church locally, mostly for the kids.

    But the pastor has really been speaking to me.

    Body and soul, twined together.

    Maybe a gospel mix for Sunday runs?

    We used to go to mass at St. Bernadette's in Lakewood but not lately. The Hub wants to start going again soon but closer to home.

    Thanks for sharing. I feel the same way many times. I really need to start making time for priorities (because if I don’t have time for them–then they aren’t really priorities, right?). Like you, I try to read my Bible or a chapter for a devotional book every night, but so often that gets pushed aside. How pathetic of me...there are 24 hours in a day, and yet I still can’t find time. You made a good point about Lent being a time for self-assessment. I need to start focusing on things that are important to me (my Faith, spending time with my family, and staying healthy). Maybe getting rid of the TV is not such a bad idea. Once again, thanks for sharing!

    Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
    Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
    Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
    Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
    Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
    The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
