The Pittsburgh Marathon is twelve days away.  Yesterday, I ran my 600th mile of the training schedule.  600 miles is a lot of running, and honestly I’m ready to be finished with the training.  But I’m still very much looking forward to 7:00am on Sunday the 15th when the race will begin (and to 10:45am when I’ll hopefully be approaching the finish line!).

Twelve days left until the marathon also means that we have twelve days left of raising support for our team running with Team World Vision.  Eileen and I and a few other friends from Upper Room are running to raise funds for clean water wells in Kenya and Ethiopia, and we’d appreciate gifts of any amount to support this mission.  To give online, visit our team page.  If you prefer to give by check, make the check out to “World Vision” and mail it to Upper Room at 5828 Forward Ave. Pittsburgh, PA 15217.
