SORT BY Relevancy
A group of Seattle Randonneurs decided to create an unofficial challenge to honor the memory of one of their own, Don Boothby, who passed away before he got a chance to complete a 300k ride every month of the year, Hence the Boothby Challenge was created.
4 riders completed it in 2014
Randonneuring is long-distance unsupported endurance cycling. This style of riding is non-competitive in nature, and self-sufficiency is paramount. Participation in randonneuring events is part of a long tradition that goes back to the beginning of the sport of cycling in France and Italy. Friendly camaraderie and perseverance are the hallmarks of randonneuring.
Derrick Worsley grew up with a father in the Army, which acclimated him somewhat to the military lifestyle as a child. However, it was never consciously engrained that he would follow in his father’s footsteps, nor did he have an understanding of the sacrifices involved in participating in the military. When his attempts at college proved unfruitful, he found that he felt a calling to join in his father’s legacy and so enlisted in the army.
While in the army, Worsley served tours in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other foreign countries. It was there that he had to adapt to a variety of cultures. Worsley describes his Army experience as making him “whole” in a way that made him more mature, grounded, and responsible. It was in fact his leaders within the Army that inspired him to continue his education to what eventually constituted a Masters degree. That education was applied to entrepreneurship, which took the form of an online company, DCdiscountOutlet.com, LLC.

About Scott Benner
I'm a stay-at-home dad, a husband, a storyteller, a type I diabetes advocate and an author. I love my family, baseball and sitting in a dark movie theater with my wife Kelly and our children, Cole and Arden.
I've always loved to tell stories but I didn't begin to put the words I felt into written form until I started my blog 'Arden's Day' on August 16, 2007. Five years later I was writing my first book, "Life Is Short, Laundry Is Eternal'.
'Arden's Day' is a look at my daughter's life with type I diabetes from my perspective. A raw, honest reflection of what life is like when you live everyday with a chronic illness. Type I diabetes advocacy has been my passion since I learned how powerful and renewing sharing and community can be to people that live with a chronic illness.
'Life Is Short, Laundry Is Eternal' is my attempt to bring both men and women a look at the other side of their relationship. I began a new life as a stay-at-home dad in 2000 after our first child was born and my experiences have shown me aspects of family life that I never imagined existed.
Beloved, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ gave us
the Perfect Example of Brotherly Love...
And it is to selflessly lay down one's life for a friend...
Just like He did at Calvary's Cross.
But really...how many of us would willingly die for another?
I salute the Men and Women in the harmed forces as they
are faced with this very peril, some everyday...laying down their lives for
our Earthly Freedom.
Beloved we are also encouraged if any falls away from the Faith
we should WIN them back? James 5:19-20
Have you ever fell Beloved?
Did you feel like it was over?
Like God was done with you?
I have been there Beloved and what is totally amazing is that in my
darkest moment, the moment I felt ashamed...That's when the LORD...
whispered "He Loved Me Then."
And He Loves You So Very Much Even In Your Darkest of Times!
So Beloved my sincere Prayer this evening that you KNOW and Believe
that I Love You and you have a friend in Jesus Christ and He Loves You
Rest assured beloved that the Scriptures below were handpicked for you
to know and Grasp the Love we ought to have one to another.
Especially those of Faith.
For Prayers, please comment or add me on Facebook.

There has been a lot of speculation on the future of Canada’s Maximum Fighting Championship. Since 2001, the Maximum Fighting Championship has been operating primarily in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. In that time, MFC President Pavelich notes that the organization has had 20 consecutive sold out shows, signed a huge television deal with Mark Cuban’s AXS TV, and has had a total of 79 fighters go from that organization to the UFC- a fact no other organization in the world of MMA can claim. However, since their last show in October of last year, many have wondered whether MFC President Mark Pavelich has walked away from MMA completely. Also since that time, Pavelich has turned down over 100 interview requests except from one person, Bob Carson.
Veteran MMA Journalist Bob Carson was the very first journalist to grill Pavelich, as he was a guest on Carson’s Corner Wednesday evening. On the issue of whether or not the MFC is done as an organization, Pavelich opines, “Since my last show, we renewed our show with AXS TV and the Fight Network, and ya know, it’s funny because I’ve been doing this for almost 15 years, and after the show was over I felt like I didn’t want to do it anymore. Everything seemed boring to me. I’ve got to step away from the sport for a little bit to see first and foremost if the fans miss me, and if I miss it.” Pavelich further states, “I always knew in this business that I was going to go out on my terms. I am not like these other MMA organizations that are borrowing money from banks, and hedge fund companies and things like that, that was never the Maximum Fighting Championship.”
Pavelich also weighed in on the Pat Reid controversy, the greatest MFC memories, and fighters that exceed or fell short of his expectations.

In historic face to face, Obama, Castro vow to turn the page
By JOSH LEDERMAN and JIM KUHNHENN
PANAMA CITY (AP) — President Barack Obama and Cuba's Raul Castro sat down together Saturday in the first formal meeting of the two country's leaders in a half-century, pledging to reach for the kind of peaceful relationship that has eluded their nations for generations.
"What we have both concluded is that we can disagree with a spirit of respect and civility," Obama said. "And over time, it is possible for us to turn the page and develop a new relationship between our two countries."In a small conference room in a Panama City convention center, the two sat side by side in a bid to inject fresh momentum into their months-old effort to restore diplomatic ties. Reflecting on the historic nature of the meeting, Obama said he felt it was time to try something new and to engage with both Cuba's government and its people.
Castro, for his part, said he agreed with everything Obama had said — a stunning statement in and of itself for the Cuban leader. But he added the caveat that they had "agreed to disagee" at times. Castro said he had told the Americans that Cuba was willing to discuss issues such as human rights and freedom of the press, maintaining that "everything can be on the table."
"We are disposed to talk about everything — with patience," Castro said in Spanish. "Some things we will agree with, and others we won't."
Not since 1958 have a U.S. and Cuban leader convened a substantial meeting.
