I’ve signed up and paid the crazy expensive registration fee to run in the Austin Half Marathon in Feb 2015. This is farther than I got last year. Last year I had full intentions of running in the Half. The week I was planning on registering, I found out I was pregnant. So this year, I did better at trying to remember to take my birth control pills, I still miss days pretty often; I guess I’m not mature enough to take a pill daily.
Anyways…I’m running the Half, it’s 13.1 miles, so this only makes me half crazy. I can wrap my brain around that. My pastor and running buddy is full on crazy. She is running the full marathon, 26.2 miles. I can’t wrap my brain around that, that’s like running for 5 hours. No thanks! By the time I finish, I will be able to take a nap, shower and do my grocery shopping while she’s still running.
Running this many miles is crazy, but there is a purpose. This is much bigger than me. I’m running to make a difference not just in my life, but in the lives of innocent children. Please help me!!
I’m running for Ferrier Village. Ferrier Village is a refuge for orphaned children who have been rescued from traffickers, or are at a high risk of being trafficked. It is a place where these children will be cared for and restored to physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.
Please read the link and sponsor a brick. Together we can build more safe homes and provide safety, food, education and love to an orphaned child!
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. James 1:27
Thanks for allowing me to share my world with you…welcome to my brain!
