Going to Race!

I am going to race! Not a big one--it's a two mile charity race in the memory of my friend's son. The Dash for Drew is to raise money for the Drew Michael Taylor Foundation, started to help underpriveleged kids grow their minds, bodies and souls.

I was questioning whether or not to do this. After all I've been through, I wasn't sure I'd be able to finish. But, I ran a couple times this week and I'm pretty certain I can complete it. It's a place to start, and I'll be proud to race in Drew's memory.

I'm going to go for it.

Final note: One of the most powerful things I EVER heard was Randy's eulogy for his son.

I'm absolutely bawling at work... what a powerful eulogy.

To see him deliver it, while putting his son in the ground, was an unbelievable testimony to him, his family, and the strength that God puts in our hearts. His example was a rock that bolstered my foundation when I went through what I did this year...

That made me go home and hug my wife and kids tonight. I can only imagine to pain of losing a child. Thank you for reminding me how much I have to be thankful for.

Good on you for pushing yourself. Don't overdo it by trying to set a land speed record; just keep putting one foot in front of the other and you'll finish. You've got no quit in you!

All I can say is "Wow!" What a man of God your friend is.

Run for Drew, one foot in front of the other, over and over. Just like football in the ocean.
