    Another picture from Cameron Park in Waco. A great place for trail running and hiking.

    Jacob's Ladder, Cameron Park, Waco Texas. I hear that there are races that include these stairs as part of the course. They actually extend farther than what the picture shows.

    Great day for a run at Cameron Park Hiking trail in Waco. Nice to meet another DM friend. Made the time go by quickly. I swear it seems runners are some of the most down to earth people ever.

    Long slow muggy 11.19 mi 02:10 11:37 pace

    I normally do my long run on Saturday but my hip was a little sore, probably due to forgetting to stretch for two days. Skipped church for this but still had some time with God.

      Excellent run in some tough conditions. In my running days, one of my friends was running by a church as it let out. One of the exiting parishioners said something like "you should be in church". His response was priceless. He shouted back, "I've probably seen more of God on my 20 mile runs that most people ever have inside a church. It still makes me laugh even today.

      Great work Patricia and yes your training is paying dividends. Dont go overboard with the runs though - it could end up biting you on the half but listen to your body and do what you think you are capable of. Peace and good luck.
