Walk with the very pregnant wife...

Today's a "medium" day for brain fatigue. I just barely made it back from walking 1.5 barefoot miles with my very pregnant Beloved who is really hoping to keep the wee beggar's head down. Baby Peanut (as we call each one before they're born and we know their gender) apparently loves somersaults. Sardonic grin.

Total 8.5 miles


  1. Deacon - Thanks for posting about this site on the Yahoo sports group on barefoot running. I want to wrap my arms around you and give you big bear hug for surviving and excelling from your brain injury. We learned yesterday that my brother, age 60, will not recover from his brain injury. He was hit broadside while riding his bicycle in Denver on June 15th. He had multiple injuries which made his blood pressure drop so far that his brain was deprived of oxygen for too long. He has been in a persistent vegetative state since the accident. His wife and kids learned that he will never pull out of this. They decided yesterday to pull the plug and let him go. Our hearts are very heavy, but we understand why its the best.

    I am very happy for you and your great goals and example! Way to go!!

    Love in the Lord -

  2. Dear Ryan and family,

    There are no words adequate for what you are experiencing. May the healing salve of Christ startle and comfort you. You, your family, and your brother are in my prayers.

    Blessings in Jesus our Christ,
