2013 race season

Happy New Year runners, swimmers, bikers, and triathletes!!!

I'm writing to ask you to consider doing a fundraiser surrounding one of your races in the upcoming season.  It could be your first 5k, or your 10th Ironman.  You could be a beginner or a seasoned pro.  We need your help!

Here's how it would work:

1.  Pick your race.
2.  Tell me the date and your goal amount to raise.  (I'd like to showcase you on the blog and Facebook and cheer you on!)
3.  Email, call, write, post on FB to all your friends asking them to sponsor your specific race.  Maybe you ask for a dollar a mile or a flat rate?  Up to you!
4.  The money can come to you or us, but it helps us get one step closer to our goal amount to bring this little guy home!

That's it!  Not hard!

Here's to a happy, healthy, and safe 2013!!!!!

it's simple really.

Do you know the story of the blind man?  The one Jesus healed by placing mud on his eyes... or what about the one that he simply touched with his hand?  You see, the story is not about how, but who.  Each time in the bible that Jesus heals someone is different.  He does not want us to focus on the healing but rather the healer.

Many people ask why we are doing this, I get the question almost daily.


It is not about us.  It is not about our family dynamics.  It is not about the money or the how.

It is about HIM.

We have people tell us they don't agree with our decision, the financial strain or relationship strain it could put us under.

Pretty sure he said this road of following him wouldn't be easy.

We weren't put on this earth to walk a wide path, but a narrow one.  And we'll keep RUNNING down it.
