I'm not sure how long I will…
I'm not sure how long I will remember and be thankful for all the supporters I had during that marathon last month, but just wanted to let you guys know that I feel very very grateful and will never forget how blown away I felt when it suddenly went over $2000 and then kept going a little past $3000!!!! Thanks Cody and Melissa and I believe with all my heart that the rewards for sacrifice far outweigh anything we can buy or invest in for ourselves!

Here is a note from the guy I raised the money for. He took me to the race and was there to support me and "carry my bags."

Reflecting on Shannon’s marathon weekend close to our hometown in Kentucky, I’m reminded of several things. One, it profoundly inspired me to observe Shannon’s passion for running become a channel for world change. As a result of this grueling three hour run and the countless hours invested in training for it, Shannon raised over $3000 for the purpose of raising up servant leaders around the world. I’m deeply grateful. Two, any major victory is a team effort. It took an army of volunteers to facilitate the event for almost 2000 runners, and more to the point, it took Shannon’s supportive family and friends to rally behind him and give him the emotional boost needed to finish such a strenuous race. God bless you for your support! Three, I was personally impacted while Shannon was running to also lace up and begin training for a race, though in my case, a much shorter one. His example energized me at age 43 to strive for yet another dream. Ultimately, I’m excited about what this race implies for the Kingdom of God: A runner who senses God’s pleasure while running for His glory, thus breaking down the sacred/secular dichotomy; men and women around the world who will lead, love, and serve like Jesus; and a follower of Jesus encouraged to run closer to the One who enables all of us to finish strong in the race of life.

Dear Cody and Melissa, Wow.…
Dear Cody and Melissa,

Wow. What a beautiful Sunday morning...and Mother's Day at that.

The marathon is less than a week away now. I am looking forward to it and trying to rest my body and get my spirit in the mood to run 26.2 miles without stopping.




I haven't felt 100% for over a week now and I'm not sure what's going on so I am just focusing on rest, hydration, and easy running. Of course the resting doesn't mean literally...we are busy as every building new houses and that keeps me out in the sun, but I am really enjoying the warmer weather even though it does sap some energy out of me.




I want to give you a personal and thoughtful THANKYOU for contributing to my fundraiser. Many friends have responded and I can think of each one of you and how special it was for me to know that you reached back and sacrificed something for this cause. My prayer is that as we "give what we cannot keep" we will gain for Heaven and eternity "something we cannot ever lose."




God bless you. You have inspired me with your generosity and support. I am committed to passing on your example of giving to other's needs.




I am delighted to report that the marathon fundraiser currently stands at $1700 with one week to go yet till race day!
