We have no problem sending our kids off to battle or "peacekeeping." It's what happens to them upon their return that's so disheartening. We were lucky, our oldest did his service but got out unscathed. I'm running this race for personal reasons, 20 km's with more than 20 obstacles. Last time I was one of the oldest participants. Please contribute if the spirit moves you. Think of the skinny guy with gray hair next Saturday.
