50 day challenge and 400 miles in February

Brack, Spencer, and I are participating in a 50 day challenge. It started on Jan. 24 and will finish on Mar. 14, one week before the running of ING Georgia. We have to run everyday for 50 days with a minimum of 5 miles per day and at least one double digit run per year. We are now on day 11, and everyone is holding strong! We are all hoping to set a PR in the ING Georgia Marathon. That will be easy for Spencer as long as he finishes since it will be his first.

I am also attempting to run 400 miles, an average of 100 miles a week for 4 weeks, in February. I have only run 100 miles in a week once in my life, and that was because I ran 67 of that at one time. This will both be challenging, but I believe benefits will come.
Did you know that there are over 143,000,000 orphans in the world! That many children without parents. I pray that the church will begin to do what it set out to do many years ago and take care of the widows and orphans in the world. What is my part? What is your part? Questions that I hope will begin to be answered in my lifetime.
It's gonna be a good year.
