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

River City 5K Tomorrow!

"And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him." -- Colossians 3:17
That's right! We're back to racing tomorrow. Well, sort of racing.

Since the weather has turned hot and humid my pace has dropped off drastically. These days I run in survival mode, just trying to get through the miles. It will stay that way until September most likely, when Fall begins to creep back into the picture and brings cooler temps.

For now though, I'll be running...slowly.

Tomorrow morning we'll be at the River City 5K in North Little Rock, Arkansas. We ran this race last year and loved it. I've already talked to several friends who will also be there and the race is for a great cause.

So it's going to be a great morning! Proceeds from the race go to support River City Ministry, a charity set up in a very poor part of North Little Rock devoted to caring for some of the community's most needy residents. According to the organization's website, those it serves are provided with:

  • Food to the hungry
  • Clothing to those in need
  • Medical care to those who do not have access to medical insurance including dental, pharmacy and eye services
  • Showers, fax and phone services
  • Spiritual guidance

I'll be running slow, won't be setting any PRs tomorrow, but we'll be running for a worthy cause.

Looking forward to a great day!
