EVENT DATE: May 03, 2015
This coming May, I will be attempting to run the Pittsburgh Marathon. For the past two years I have ran the half marathon with my friend Brian Wallace. I have enjoyed the atmosphere and the support that I have been given by other runners.
However, this year, I would like to run for something bigger than myself or my own enjoyment. I would like to help raise funds for the New Wilmington Mission Conference Endowment fund.
This conference has played an incredible role in my family’s spiritual formation. Most of the work and choices that my wife and I make have been influenced by this conference and the wonderful people who attend. We have spent the last 10 years being inspired, challenged and motivated to follow God and serve others.
We have also had the opportunity to bring along some foster children who were treated like royalty. One little girl who stayed with us constantly talked about her friends from NWMC. The love she felt over that week seemed to stay with her throughout the year, regardless of what was going on around her.
I will occasionally post updates on my training (both good and bad) and share some lessons that I learn along the way. I look forward to the adventure ahead!
