"Beauty confronts us with the requirement that we place ourselves among...the redeemers, the leaders in the protection of life. Once you have seen the bush on fire, you are not going to get out of the assignment unless you close your eyes to the beauty.... [You] either have to close your eyes or go back to Egypt and set the people free." - Rev. Dr. Rebecca Parker, "Rising to the Challenge of Our Times"

running & reflecting
The Valentine run was a success; I came in at 31:37, and as I may have mentioned to a few people, only felt a little bit like barfing at the end. I'm questioning my choice of race "recovery" foods over the weekend though. Four words: chocolate cake, jalapeno poppers.
