Strawberry Fields

Oxnard is one of Californias most agriculturally rich areas. On our run this morning we had a brisk 20 miler under the over cast sky through cabbage, tomato, grass, and tons of strawberry fields. Today seemed to impress all of our senses with the beautiful weather, sights, smells, birds singing, and, well I guess taste wasn’t used. Because of the shorter distance we ended early before lunch and took some time to eat at a park called Mission Park in Ventura. It was located in the downtown area that boasts some of the earliest developed missions in California. We have been resting today, relaxing and preparing for a long run that we have tomorrow, which will bring us into Santa Barbara. Mentally the run has become more taxing. Each day has blured into another while making time unknown. Half the time I can’t remember what day it is or the date. But hostely it makes it more fun. Forcing me to live in the moment and take advantage of opportunities as they come.

  1. Today is Sunday The Lord’s Day the 24th day of May. For us too it is at times a blur. But you notes and especially your senses of humor keep us in the “today” moment. Thank you. God Speed. And rest well in Santa Barbara. Love you guys.

  3. Hi Guys. Good to see you are getting up the coast. We pray for you every day and trust that you will experience Isaiah’s experience…”but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
    Isaiah 40:30-31
