I run to conquer the mountain.
I run to see how far I can go.
I run to see how fast I can finish.
I run for my family.
I run for the pleasure.
I run for the pain.
I run because it inspires people.
I run because others have inspired me.
I run because my body is designed to.
I run because I like it.
I run for the one who created it all.
I run for many reasons.
I run for the 143,000,000 million orphans in the world. "Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress..." James 1:27
I love to run and will run until I can no longer. Amy and I have decided I will run for what we are most passionate about in the world, and that is those who cannot care for themselves... the helpless children in the world who have no home. We also believe that we are to personally take the responsibility of taking care of the orphans by eventually bringing children into our home as our own.
I have a lot to say about running, the CRAZY people I meet. The incredible friends that I have made and will continue to make. The many races that I have and will run. These things will be talked about in the weeks to come, as well as giving updates as to how we will be bringing awareness to the unbelievable injustice of the 143 million!
Oh, and check out runninghope.com, the organization that I will be running for.
Stay tuned for more about my crazy adventures this year as well as how you can get involved!
