OK, It’s the 10K

Believe it or not, Christina and I will be running the Dexter-Ann Arbor 10K Race on June 3rd. I don’t know what possessed me – maybe an early mid-life crisis… ha!

Christina loves to run and she wanted to enter into a race, so I was thinking that this will be a great way to do something together and to show my support for her.

In all honesty, I do not like running just for the sake of running. I ran in soccer games and basketball games, but to run just for running… hmm.

So I came up with 3 good reasons for this insanity:

1) The Challenge – I realized that I love challenges and when Christina challenged me, it was game over.

2) The Conditioning – as I am getting older, it is that much more important to make sure that I am healthy and my body is in good condition.

3) The Companionship – this is a good way for me to spend the extra time with Christina and even strengthen our marriage as we do something together.

For those of you who are metrically challenged, a 10K race is about 6.2 miles. I thought to myself that is so simple. But today, in order to start training, I ran 2 miles with Christina. I thought Jesus was going to come back today!

I will try to update you on the progress through the weeks. Today, I ran 2 miles in 29 minutes. I am in trouble.

TEAM Community Summit 2007

Today, the leaders and I will be going away to begin our Leadership Summit. I have been a firm believer that everything rises and falls with leadership. We have been so blessed in the past years to have committed and sacrificial leaders who were willing to give everything and anything to build up God’s Kingdom.

But this year is a rebuilding year. I can’t help but to think about a championship sports team that drafts new players and does some free agent trades. For us, close to half of the leadership will change this year – which is a good thing… because like in any winning team, it is easy to get comfortable and just have aging people on the roster.

If we are going to win more championships, then we need to start drafting some of the young talents and rookies and then invest in them.

With any rebuilding year, it will take some time to get to the next level… just look at the Chicago Bulls. This might be the year that they will go pretty far since the glory days of Michael Jordan.

I am excited because we have the right ingredients this year to build a championship team for years to come.
