What are you passionate about? At church this morning there was a couple and they were speaking about human trafficking. W-O-W. It was INTENSE! This guy was SO passionate, it was insane. Human trafficking really is a huge problem. Just last week in Central Florida they released a story about a girl who had been kidnapped in Orlando, and brought to Minneola (yah, Minneola, Wiki it and see what the population is..it’s not much) .. There is another story about a sex ring of 44 people busted in Polk County over the weekend.
The speaker said, “If you don’t see human trafficking, you aren’t looking” At first, I thought, well how am I going to see it. I mean, what am I looking for? Read the news. It’s everywhere. Go to your local newspaper and in the search option type in “human trafficking” . I did. The results were sickening. 10 pages of results. The New York Times has a whole section dedicated to Human Trafficking.
Anyways, let’s talk about my run today. I had 8 miles scheduled according to my Hal Higdon’s Half Marathon training plan. The weather was questionable and I was debating to run outside or try and run on the treadmill. I was really doubting my ability to stay motivated for 8 miles on the treadmill. Some ladies from an H&F board convinced me to go outside and run, even if it was in the rain.
Thankfully it did not rain, and the weather cooperated quite nicely. We (Chris road his bike) ran in the neighborhood and ventured down some streets we haven’t been down before. This kept my run interesting for a little while, it was nice to see new things. We saw quite a few amazing houses, and we had amazing views of the Gulf for a few minutes!
and yes, I am totally copying Shelby from Eat,Drink,Run – That whole screen capture thing is pretty tricky, and she has it all figured out. So, Thanks Shelby!
