First off, THANK you for bearing with me as I
continually post, fill your inbox, and flood your Facebook page with updates
about Team World Vision. I could not have made it through 17+ weeks of
training without your encouragement and support. This will be my final
pre-race update! I promise to only fill your inbox one last
time post-race...this year anyway :)
Second, I still need your
help to get to race day. My achilles is still not 100%, so I covet your
prayers. What's worse, my closest teammate, Scott, is also injured. He
took a nasty fall on Friday night, and at this moment, he is still not
sure he can even run on race day. If you could pray for physical and
mental healing, I would be forever grateful. To those of you already
praying, THANK YOU!
Third, I would love your support on race day
if possible. I have said it before, and I will say it again...the
spectators last year really helped me cross the finish line. Seeing my
family and friends throughout the course was AMAZING. If you are in
town, I promise you will have fun. Cheering on runners might not sound
like fun, but trust me, it is. Even for non-runners. Make signs, bring
cow bells, yell loudly. It makes a difference. My goal is to keep a pace
of 9:45/mile if that helps you decide when and where to go :)
THANK YOU to those of you have already sponsored me financially. At
this moment, I have raise $2,985 dollars. That means that 59 people will
now have clean water FOR LIFE because of my family and friends. WE ARE
CHANGING THE WORLD, PEOPLE! LITERALLY!!! I am so honored and humbled. I
have been brought to tears many times during this fundraising journey.
Bono once said, "We can be the generation that no longer accepts that an accident of latitude and longitude determines whether a child lives or dies." I truly believe that now. Together we are solving the clean water crisis.
there is still time to support me! If you are willing and able, click
