Route 66 Marathon Completion

Well, the Route 66 Marathon is now history. Weather was beautiful - overcast most of the morning, slightly misty & in the 60's. Having run the Spirit of Survival Marathon 3 weeks prior, I was not sure what I was going to do or expect. The redone course was beautiful however some the hills were saved until the latter part of the race. Oh well.

I had a quick recovery afterwards which is a good sign in my preparation for my Chisohlm Trail Challenge in 2009. I am trying to focus all of my effort on knowing that we truly do not have boundaries except for those that are physically impossibilities. Sometimes through our suffering, we feel that we have reached our limits & just quit. Time & time again, history has shown that people have endured tremendous physical & mental hardships; often beyond what the average person would deem impossible. But ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE TO THOSE WHO LOVE AND SERVE THE LORD.

I will be starting my fund raising campaign in 2008 in efforts to raise money for wheelchairs, prosthetics & canes fro those who need them but cannot afford them. It will bring about an awareness that we can all overcome our self-limiting boundaries if we only have faith & are of strong will.

- Until next time -
