Humidity and Hills

Due to ongoing construction on Main St. in Lexington, YHC was notified that parking would need to be moved to the lot across from LBC on Main. How fortuitous, as the plan was to run Butler loops…

Conditions: MUGGY

The Thang:
Butler loops: from start run down Main to Harmon (first traffic light you come to), turn left onto Harmon, then left again onto East Butler. Run up the ridiculous hill and take the first left. At the end of the street, left again back onto Main, then repeat the same course taking the 2nd, 3rd, 4th left off East Butler. Repeat this series of loops until time runs out.

Devo: Romans 7 14-25

YHC thought this verse came to him from the strip of scripture given out on Cheech’s runvergence, but alas it was not. It may have been a Twitter post, or some other source, but regardless, the message stands:

We are imperfect by nature. We know what is right (most of the time), and yet cannot always overcome our flesh and do the right things. We know what is wrong, and yet find ourselves committing the same sins over and over again. We are miserable! (Just like Paul). But! Jesus has saved us from this cycle. In Christ we are no longer slaves to sin; we are forgiven. Pray. Read the Word. Pray more. God will continually sanctify you through His Holy Spirit. Temptations will still come, but you just may find yourself winning more than you lose.

Prayer Requests:

-JJ – back / possible surgery
-Hash & Rice – request for a soldier’s brother who is recovering from a stroke (outlook is positive, Praise)

– The hill is a real challenge, YHC saw lots of guts from those that actually ran the course… apparently there was a mutiny, as several PAX who will remain nameless decided to run a different route. Though it is entirely possible YHC simply was too slow to catch up to said PAX on-course.
– TCLAPS to Ken Doll, Scooper, Knozit, and Bing for completing around 6 miles before-hand. Strong work men!
– More TCLAPS to Paper Jam… dude is a maniac on the hill, YHC witnessed two sprints up the length of Mount Butler.
– Cobains for getting elevation wrong… YHC promised around 800ft of ascent for a 6 mile run, ended up around 604ft for 5.5 according to YHC’s Garmin
