Misplaced Anxiety

We leave for NYC tomorrow.  I've trained hard, maybe too hard, and am nursing some knee and hip pain on my left side.  That is adding the the incredible amount of anxiety I am feeling towards the race on Sunday.  I think some of that is also being fed by the unknown around what I am to experience Sunday morning.

Someone sent me a wonderful note saying that all I have to do is get myself to the start line, and God will take care of the rest.  Someone else asked me, "what's the worst that can happen?"  Pretty smart support from two friends.  At the end of the day, this is just a long race...not a life-threatening or life-saving event.

But what the team and I are fundraising for IS about life and death.  Child Protection is about keeping the most heinous evils away from the most vulnerable of children AND from restoring them when it does happen to occur.  This is knee pain during Sunday's race ultimately is not...

So, we have a couple of more days to raise money, and reach my increased goal of $7500.  Additionally, the team is less than $20,000 away from our increased goal of $200,000.  Please consider making a very generous donation and help make a decision for life.

Thanks, and God Bless you.
