"If you’ve raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with horses? If you stumble in safe country, how will you manage in thickets by the Jordan?" (Jeremiah 12:5). Our journey is intended to be more than simply "stumbling" through the days while the world "wears us out.” We are made to experience the thrill of "running with horses” and to navigate life amongst the "thickets." The RWH blog focuses on both the spiritual race of which Jeremiah speaks, and the physical act of running that I absolutely love. In short, it's where "the miles meet the Message" to provide insight, perspective & encouragement that might enable you & I to successfully run either of the races set before us. May our course be purposeful and may we be passionate in our pursuit of the abundant life He desires for us.

Refuel With Style

What's the worst kept secret in Winston-Salem? I reward Saturday Salem Lake runs with a Krispy Kreme doughnut and a chocolate milk.  What's the best kept secret in Winston-Salem? Following a particularly challenging tempo run, or any workout that has left the tank on empty, I have found a great new way to refuel; the Bella Banana at Bobs Big Gas Subs and Pub, (yes, that's quite a mouthful, but so is the sandwich!).   
The perfect combination of guilt free, post-run nutrition with just a slight touch of guilty pleasure. Start with a wheat sub, add bananas, peanut butter and Nutella, then toast to gooey, crispy goodness.  Add the sweet potato fries and black bean side dish, and it's really a pretty good recovery lunch.  Of course, the Bella Banana is an easy one to whip up at home.  And even a pretty good breakfast before the long run. To go hard core, hold off on the Nutella spread.  Wait, scratch that, never hold off on the Nutella, just run an extra mile!
