Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,--Hebrews 12:1

Next Race: Doc Rock & Run Half Marathon/5K

We're registered for our next race, another half marathon/5K combination. I'll be running the half marathon and Janice will do the 5K. This time though, we'll have another participating with us. Our 16 year old daughter, Courtney, announced she will also participate in the 5K! Thank you Jesus for getting her interested in helping us with this!

The event will be in Jonesboro, Arkansas on April 16 as part of the HMG Health & Fitness Expo. The Doc Rock & Run, sponsored by Associated Radiologists, will start at 7:00 AM. The half marathon is new to the event this year. Both races will start and end at the Arkansas State University Convocation Center.

We'll be wearing Running with Amanda shirts that we've ordered in Jonesboro, and after the race we'll be circulating through the crowd to Reach, Raise, and Remember. You can help us get a head start by donating to one of the three charities we support through our running. Click the "Donate" tab at the top of this page, or use the links on the right side of the page. Choose one of the charities you'd like to support and donate safely and securely. You're donations go to the charities, not to us!

For as little as $3.10, you can help save and change lives by donating to St. Jude Children's Hospital, Arkansas Children's Hospital, or Soaring Wings Ranch. Please consider giving one of the following amounts, or more if you feel led, to help us Reach, Raise, and Remember!
  • $3.10 to give $1/mile that either Janice or Courtney will run.
  • $6.20 to give $1/mile that Janice and Courtney will run.
  • $13.10 to give $1/mile that I will run.
  • $19.30 to give $1/mile that all three of us will run.
