Crusaders Charge Whiteford and Return Victorious

The 11 pax posted at the BOM grew to 12 pax by the COT.  Today YHC decided that it was time to return to the Whiteford hill.  22.5 minutes out and back for a 45 minute total run today.  Every pax made it to the top of Whiteford without stopping to Walk, and every pax covered more than 4 miles. Some of the faster pax may have topped 5 miles (YHC forgot to ask).  Excellent Work!

Conditions: Mid 60s with a nice Breeze.  In other words: PERFECT or pretty close to it.

The Thang:

Depart the parking lot at PLC south down highway 6 to the Whiteford Entrance.  Follow Whiteford way all the way up to the stoplight at 378.  Keep running until you hit 22 minutes or so, and return to the starting point.


  • Glad to have Peter and Turnbuckle in front of me coming up Hwy 6 on the Homestretch.  The fact they never stopped and the faster pax passing YHC provided the push and motivation to finish.  Otherwise YHC would have walked at some point.
  • Cool to have everyone finish within 1-2 minutes.  The beauty of the Out and Back.
  • TClaps to Peter on completing the Whiteford Hill for the first time since starting Stride/Crusade.  Proud of your Progress!

“Annointed to Lead”

“His face was radient because he had spoken with the LORD.” – Exodus 34:29

The Bible says: “Moses was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights… When Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the two tablets of the Testimony in his hands, he was not aware that his face was radiant because he had spoken With the Lord. When Aaron and all the Israelites saw Moses … they were afraid to come near him. But Moses called to them; so Aaron and all the leaders of the community came back to him and he spoke to them … and he gave them all the commands the Lord had given him” (w. 28-32 NIV). When the Israelites were in Moses’ company, there was a look on his face that told them he’d been in the presence of the Lord. They could see it and sense it. The Bible refers to this as the ‘anointing’ (I John 2:27). Simply put, the anointing is God equipping and empowering you to succeed in what He’s called you to do. Anointed leadership is always characterized by these four benchmarks:

  1. Calling. When people are around an anointed leader, they sense that God has truly gifted and assigned that person to fulfill a certain purpose.
  2. Character. People see God’s nature in an anointed leader, and as a result they trust them.
  3. Competence. An anointed leader has the ability to get the job done right. The results validate his or her calling.
  4. Conviction. Anointed leaders aren’t wishy-washy; they have moral and spiritual backbone and they stand up for what’s right.

These four qualities are benchmarks of God-called leadership, and when people see them at work in your life they will follow you.
