Hi there,
My wife and I were scheduled to be married this Saturday, May 9th. Instead, the Corona-virus reshaped the world and both of our lives.

After several weeks more than expected, multiple drafts, and a team of people helping to make sense of my writing, I'm proud to share my and Tiffany's story. 

The article was a bit more vulnerable than intended or expected, but I hope it can provide a positive light in today's world.

Thank you, Tiffany, for marrying me and allowing me to share our story. The ride's been surreal. I look forward to the future together.

Idea Worth Pondering

Reading about the lack of real progress over the last 50 years, I recently came across Planck's Principle. In 1950, Max Planck wrote:

A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it. . . . An important scientific innovation rarely makes its way by gradually winning over and converting its opponents: it rarely happens that Saul becomes Paul. What does happen is that its opponents gradually die out, and that the growing generation is familiarized with the ideas from the beginning: another instance of the fact that the future lies with the youth.

This seems relevant to U.S. politics, where the ranking politicians are from the Silent Majority or Baby Boomers. As Generation X and Millenials take over, how will they reshape the world?

Just A Little Stir-Crazy?

I signed up for the Great Virtual Race Across Tennessee 1000k (GRVAT). From the mind of lazarus lake, the creator of the 10-day Last Annual Vol-State 500k (314miles) and Barkley Marathon, this is the 2020 Corona-virus edition. 

Starting May 1, runners have until August 31 to complete 1000k, the equivalent distance from the southwestern tip of TN to the northeastern tip.

All my races for the foreseeable future have been canceled. If this doesn't kill me, I'll be ready to roll in the Fall. To certify my insanity, I'm going to share my progress each week.

The race requires an average of five miles/day. Miles are self-reported with the qualifier that all miles must be intentionally covered distances on foot. Miles from routine activities (steps) do not count. 

Even crazier, as of this writing there are 17,841 participants including 260 dogs. The leader has 226 miles already.

Day 1/Fri: 0
Sat: 8.64
Sun: 10.76
Mon: 3.1
Tue: 0

Total Miles: 22.5
Total % Complete: 3.5%
+/- Distance from Finishing Pace: -2.5 miles
Quote of the Week

"If you light a lamp for someone else it will also brighten your path."
- Buddha
Until next week, stay safe, sane, and intentional.
