A huge thank you to my friend @johnpetersen5837 who answered my phone call when i had a slow leak on my ride today. He was kind enough to give me a patch for my tube then when i was filling it back up with air i got a second leak at the valve. It’s a major blessing to have friends willing to interrupt their afternoon when you’re miles from home and need help. The culprit was retread from a tire about 1/4 inch long that tore a hole in my tube. You can’t meet your goals without friends willing to help you. This is an awesome community of cyclists in the world. I’m thankful for everyone who chooses to ride two wheels. #jimmydonahoo
QUESTION!!!???? Has ANYONE found a pair of #headphones that they can use when #biking and #running where they can hold an actual conversation on their phone? I have tried desperately to find a pair. All of my #triathlon friends, biking friends, running friends please tell me what has worked best for you. I can listen to books or music fine but when i need to have a work call or need to talk to family while riding it’s impossible to hear. It’s like I’m in a hurricane!!! Please comment and tell me what you have found that actually works. #jimmydonahoo
If you’re gonna try and work with @andrewipayne and Roofer Dan, you had better be prepared to use big boy toys...
This morning i needed just a little more time in the #bible to help me focus on what matters most in my life. With so many things trying to catch our attention every single moment, i am often reminded that what matters most is the word of God. I know the Bible is true. I know that as we study the words of the prophets we will have a better understanding of ourselves and of the eternities. Sometimes we need to slow down in order to speed up. Life is a journey back to our loving Father in Heaven. The most important aspects of our lives revolves around God and family. As we put the most important things first, all else will fall into place. If life seems stressful or heavy right now, may i suggest that you take a moment to read the Bible and to pray to God for the peace and guidance you need. He is always there for you. #jimmydonahoo
Every time i look up at the sky and think about how everything aligns and works together .... the moon, the planets, the solar system and our tiny place in it, life gets put into perspective. The big things are really little things and a perfect God loves each of us. Life is a balance of dreaming big and focusing on the humble aspects of how small we really are. #jimmydonahoo
So i like to run. It’s kind of a big part of my life. When i run I’m happy. I prefer trail runs to the road because few things beat running on dirt in the mountains. This year i started wearing @altrarunning shoes. I rotate through a few pair and they have helped me a ton in focusing on changing up my stride to a mid foot or forefoot strike. I have been a heel striker my entire life so this transition is still new and i really have to focus on it when I’m out for more than 7 miles. Keep running and laughing and smiling!!! #jimmydonahoo
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He knows us and He loves us. He knows when we are doing our very best and when life feels extra heavy. He knows when we need a little more help to buoy up our faith. I know that my Redeemer lives. I pray daily for the strength to be a man of God and to be kind in my dealings with others. I am thankful for the atonement of Jesus Christ more than words could ever express. He loves me enough to help me back to heaven. He loves each and every one of us. He knows and loves you just like He knows and loves me. Please take the time to kneel in prayer today and give thanks for the many blessings in your life. Today is a blessing and each breath is borrowed. #jimmydonahoo
