UPDATE - 3/26/12 - On the last 8 runs, I have logged over 80 miles worth of training including a 22 mile run (which nearly killed me). I think we're going to be ready to represent Team Living Water and all it stands for!!!
Last year, I ran 13.1 miles with Team Living Water - I ran the the race in 2hr 5min. What a great cause, what a great experience. Thank you to those of you that supported me and this wonderful organization. You were a part of our Team's several 10's of thousands of dollars worth of donations. Remember - every $10K plants a clean drinking water well somewhere in the world ... furthering His Kingdom. If this was your first time giving, way to go! If you've given before, thank you for choosing such a wonderful cause.
AS FOR THIS YEAR, I am stepping it up a notch - running the full marathon, 26.2 miles. I am dedicating this run to:
1 - My Heavenly Father - I learn to trust Him more and more each day.
2 - My Pops - because of his courage, the Lopez Famliy came to the US in 1980. His Birthday is on race day - April 15th! I love you Mi Viejo!
3 - My Beautiful Wife Candice, Johannes Jr., Milena, and AnaSofia - our family is praying for a healthy and beautiful baby girl - due on May 19th. Mi Munequita!
Thank you for doing life with me!
