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

TEAM 413 Prayer Before Little Rock Marathon

Race weekend is finally here! Sunday morning we'll be at the Little Rock Marathon where I'll run the half and Janice is running the 10K. So now we're making all the final preparations for the big day.

Little Rock last year was my first marathon as a member of TEAM 413, the world's largest ministry targeting the endurance athlete community. Myself and about 4 other members of TEAM 413 met for a pre-race prayer. This year we decided to make this a tradition at the Little Rock Marathon.

We want to invite EVERYONE to join us tomorrow morning for a TEAM 413 pre-race prayer at Little Rock. We'll meet at 5:40 AM (so the early starters can join us) and at 7:30 AM (for those who won't be at the race 2 hours early) in front of the entrance to the Perks tent. You are welcome to join us for either prayer, or both.

If you're worried about getting to the start on time, don't be. This won't be a long, drawn out prayer and we're meeting only about 50 yards from the starting corrals. I promise we'll get to the start with time to spare.
"I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength." -- Philippians 4:13

Since we're on the topic of TEAM 413, I can't close this post without mentioning the upcoming TEAM 413 "Get There and Share" Half Marathon and 4.13K race in Homewood, Alabama. (That's the Birmingham area.) This year TEAM 413 celebrates its 10 year anniversary with its first ever sponsored race on 4-13-13. That's barely more than a month away and registrations are pouring in. There are caps on the number of participants for both races, so REGISTER SOON to guarantee your bib for this great event!

If you don't know Jesus as your personal savior, if you're missing the faith, hope, and love written about here, if you want the peace that we as Christians have in our lives, please visit our Got Jesus? page for step-by-step instructions on how to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior.
