What is next?

This is the question that has been swirling around in my crazy mind for a while now.  Obviously, all of my training from here until November will be dedicated to the completion of the Pinhoti 100 mile trail run in under 24 hours.  I have been advised not to set a time goal in my first 100 mile race, but with the amount of dedicated training that I will have, and the way my mind works, this is my goal.  I will be very content with the completion of my first 100 mile race regardless of the time, but I really want to come in under 24 hours!!!  So I said it, and now it's time to get to work.  

There has been some question about what is up with the name of my blog, and as I have briefly explained, my goal is to raise awareness for the orphans in the world...THERE ARE 143,000,000!!!!!  I am broken to think of myself and the fact that there is nothing I did as a child to deserve a home and loving parents more than the children that were born in a different circumstance.  Why me?  How do I deserve this life more than others?  I don't!  This is why I believe in taking care of those who, by no choice of there own, are born into unfortunate circumstances.  In the house of the Burnetts, we feel it is our responsibilities to take care of these souls.  

I will be doing a lot to raise awareness in the months and years to come.  I will also give you many ways to get involved.  For some, it may be to join in the effort of raising finances.  For others, it may be that you will become a financial supporter of this cause.  For some, and I really pray that this is true for many, you may find yourself in the adoption process in your future.  I said it, and now you are thinking, right?  

This is a crazy world we live in, and deep down we all feel we are here to fulfill a deep purpose in this world, embrace it!  Whatever it may be, please embrace it, and live with such passion that you make the world a better place.

Congratulations to Jennifer Vogel and crew for winning the Keys 100 miler with a time of 19:10!  I love getting to know such amazing people in this world of running.

Run On!!!
