Weekly Update, Monday, April 24, 2017:
Good morning. Ready, set, go. Race week is here, and I am psyched. Last week's training went well, capped off by an 11 mile run on Saturday. Taking it easy this week with shorter workouts, and a few extra minutes of sleep. The weekend forecast for Nashville is warm and humid, so I will do some running after work when temps are a bit higher.
I am blown away by your generosity over the past few weeks. My fundraising continues, and more importantly your expressions of encouragement have been warmly embraced. You are all an important part of a year-long journey (and many of you have been on board much longer) that I have been on as I rebuild physical strength and gain an appreciation on the important things in life. Thank you.
I am running the Nashville 1/2 Marathon on April 29 for those who have lost, beaten, or continue their struggle: Paul D., Roland L., Karen M., Edus W., and many others. I run for those who cannot run at this time, anticipating the day when we will all run together. I run with optimism and determination. And I run with joy and gratitude for all who have supported me during my training.
Thank you for your support of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and its remarkable progress. A donation of any size points us in the right direction, and toward a brighter day. We will get there!
