Only 3 Days to Go

First and foremost I want to thank everyone for all of your support during the past three months.  I have been blessed to have the support of amazing friends and family during the buildup of this race and I could not do it with out you all!  Many, many thanks!

As we approach race day I feel as though this experience has been a blessing in so many ways, but in way way in particular.  I have been running off and on for about thirteen years now and for the most part I have ran for personal bests or for my own achievements.  But this time is different, to run for something and someone else has really made running more meaningful to me.  No longer am I running for medals or accolades, this time I’m running for a group of people who suffer daily.  A group of people that do not have the same advantages that I do, I group of people that need help just to able to eat and drink once a day.  For this experience and this opportunity I thank God, my friends and family, my friend Cameron, and my new friends Mark Graham and Mark Wilkerson.
