Running a Marathon for Missions

Well folks, I've made up my mind for my upcoming marathon in February. I am going to take pledges for the 26.2 mile stroll through the desert. I am going to make some flyers and ask people to pledge so much per mile that I complete and then throw it all in the pot for the mission teams going out this summer. So pray that I will get a lot of pledges and support in this endeavor. Training is going well, with the exception of the cold I had the past 2 weeks. But it is all gone now and I'm feeling great. I am also thinking about getting a special shirt made for the race to advertise VCC and the mission teams. I have a lot to plan, think and pray about. I am looking forward to a visit from my Mom and Dad tomorrow. My dad is a great fixer upper kind of guy and he is coming to help me out with a few things around the house. I will take him and mom out for some sushi for lunch. Yummy! If you ain't tried sushi, you don't know what you're missing. I'm out Yo! Peace!

Sushi ROCKs. I'm on the Atkins diet right now, so have to do the sashimi thing. I MISS RICE. . .

Good idea with the fund-raiser. Good luck and Godspeed.

I've been playing my sax at blues jams around town and the country (Played 3 times in Philly). Played last night for about 30 minutes and got to play my favorite jam song of all time: Mercy, Mercy, Mercy by Cannonball Adderly/Joe Zawinul. I'm torn between bringing my skateboards or bringing my horn to AZ for Christmas.

You're doing Atkins? I've heard good and bad about it. But I say hey, whatever works for you. Personally, as a runner, I can't go without carbs.

That sounds like a blast being able to jam the blues at those clubs.

As for what you should bring to AZ? I say the skateboards. You should let Jaxon bring his too or his rollerblades. There is a skatepark in Gilbert at Freestone Park not too far from my house. I'm sure you guys would have a blast there.

Yeah, Atkins is probably not the best diet, but it quickly melts the pounds. If you really go ultra-low carbs to 0 carbs, you actually create this state of metabolic acidosis and, hopefully, ketosis. it's weird. your breath starts to stink and everything. there is a period about a week into it that you feel fatigued, but then it's ok. i've been going for 3 weeks and lost about 8 pounds.

Hello Sir Keith. Thanks for recommending Pastor Ben to me. I'll wait for his response.

God bless you in the youth ministry.
