So you wanna run after you bike? Good luck with that

At 7 am morning, Mark ran five miles in the Shoehouse race. I slept. He came in 7th, with a time of 34 minutes, five seconds. Which is so much faster than I can do almost anything. He was not happy with that time because a woman beat him. I didn’t feel sorry for him.

After the race, we both biked 19 miles on our road bikes. I have been trying to increase my speed on my regular route, and since the start of the season I have gone from an average of 14.5 miles per hour to 16 miles per hour. I have done this by pedaling as fast as I can, until I feel like I might puke, and then pedaling even faster. I also think the fact that I have started running has helped.

Hope for Today 5k: Addiction Awareness and Recovery

To me, people who got into drugs and ruined their lives were people who were raised by parents who didn’t care or were nonexistent. They were people who likely had no morals or standards by which to live. I was always taught to “just say no” and I couldn’t understand how hard of a concept that was for others to grasp. Four years ago, I got into a relationship with an addict.
