We did it! Finished the race just before the storms hit.  Yea!

Why Do I Do This To Myself?

Somewhere around mile 4 I start asking myself this question… Why do I do this to myself?  I’m only a third of the way done.  I’ve already been running over 40 minutes and I still have a long way to go. Today our Powered by Hope/Cross Point team ran 12 miles. 12 MILES!! That’s the […]
