Nightly run or…

Ok, so those of you who know me know I have started running, I am not the fastest or most graceful of runners. I am nothing to look at and probably give a few chuckles to those in cars who pass by me on my midnight excursions into south Kansas City suburbia. At 6’4+” and 260 pounds I probably am not to impressive and you would not confuse me with Ben Johnson.   I have never been a runner and well the only thing I have ever run for in the past was the ice cream truck or the fridge. I am not sure if it is a mid-life crisis deal or what but I have been purposefully changing my life. I dropped 60 lbs. and have been getting in shape. I find the time alone very contemplative and enjoyable. I started out listening to music but have switched to biblical studies on mp3. I have also spent alot of the time praying and listening… I have also started to blog (you may have noticed if your reading this). It really doesn’t matter if anyone ever reads this or not I am doing this more as an outlet of thought and a synthesis of the things that come  out of my time alone.

I went out for a run tonight listening to Matt Candler and the “New Song” I made it about 1km and my ankle, well kind of gave out. By the time I hobbled home my ankle was feeling much better. I didn’t quite feel like trying to run again but thought “hey let’s change it up.” I picked up my bike and went for about a 10 mile ride. I felt some muscles I haven’t felt for a while I’m wondering if I should take a pre-emptive dose of ibuprofen… too lazy we’ll just find out how it comes out in the morning.

well that’s it for tonight…

About Ben Kilen

I am a average guy father of 4. I don't claim any super powers or amazing talents. I do have a double jointed thumb and I have always hoped it would bring me wealth and fame but so far it hasn't. I am an eclectic music lover as long and by music current day main stream rap does not qualify as music. Anything that has one to two sentences hammered over and over with no melody or excessive auto tune does not qualify.
