Wayne Pederson, who is faster than me.
And on top of that … yes another “on top of that” statement, the course was a quarter-mile more than 5K! I know because I had my running app on during the race.
Despite all these things, I ran my best race in years! Maybe it was because this was sea level and I live at 6,800 feet elevation. I was mighty proud of my 8:55 miles, over 30 seconds ahead of my normal pace. I was a gazelle.
The race was on the final day of Momentum, a conference of several hundred Christian radio people who want to learn how to best reach their communities for Christ.
Representing Reach Beyond, we were there to build relationships with stations that want to help us send SonSet radios to Nepal, Indonesia and other countries where we've planted radio stations. It turned out great, and there was increased interest this year on the part of stations who may want to partner with us.
Speaking of Nepal, be praying for the restoration of that country. They are in monsoon season, but when that ends, Reach Beyond will be sending teams to help in the rebuilding of one village in particular that was ravaged by the quake.
