October 27, 2012 - Chosen Marathon
It's 4:45 AM as my alarm goes off and my eyes struggle open. I am safe and secure in my warm cocoon but I must force myself out of bed because today is MARATHON DAY!!! My excitement over the day ahead provides me with the needed strength to drag myself out of bed into the cold air and get ready.
I head out toward lovely Gruene, TX for the a day of fun and excitement! It is a frigid 45 degrees with winds from the north at 15 mph but that doesn't deter the runners and supporters! Regardless of the cold we are there to support orphans around the world!!! There were 1500 runners from 25 different states across our nation! All there to support either orphanages or specific adoptions like ours! GO TEAM YOU YOU!!!!!!
Besides cheering and supporting our Team and the hundreds of others running, I got the privilege of helping set up and man the Kids Fun Run! It was a great activity for the kids, providing them with an opportunity to support adoption and have fun!! What a great day!
For those of you who ran in support of our adoption, we will never be able to thank you enough for your hard work and amazing dedication! You are directly responsible for helping us bring home our precious boy! You all amaze me and I am so proud of your accomplishment!!
Get ready for a slew of pictures!
