Unpredictable

All marathoners will tell you the best and worst part about “the marathon” is it’s unpredictability. You can prepare, train, and practice, but no runner can be absolutely ready for what actually happens race day…and thus its great parallel with life.



For some there is victory, and others agony, there are always choices and consequences, risks and rewards, and even though there can only be one “winner”, all who finish receive a metal signifying ones dedication to completing the race… Continue

From Heather....New York Marathon Finsher



My Dear Friends and Family!





I sit here today a little sore, a bit tired, but extremely blessed. Thanks to all of you and your support I have had the opportunity of a lifetime. The New York Marathon was an extraordinary journey. It started with a red eye flight out of Seattle Friday night, landing in New York Saturday morning. Saturday was filled with an expensive taxi trip to our hotel, a long walk to pick up our Race Day… Continue

Another opportunity to wear my "Run for Our Sons" jersey



Last weekend, I competed in a local sprint triathlon. This is my regular summer race date with my older brother, Norm. Heather was not going to be with me this race, which is very unusual, and I was feeling just a little off before the race.

The Happy Ending

.....as it ends up, two people bid $200 dollars on Stephanie's scrapbook auction for Micah. So Stephanie decides to make two books, and then another of Stephanie's fan/readers donated $100 of her own money to the pot for a grand total of $500. Again this is someone who does not know ANY of us. What a AWESOME reminder that God is taking care of Micah!

Random Acts of Kindness....

Team HAM, creating HOPE, raising AWARENESS, fundraising for a MIRACLE for DMD is the local Run for Our Son's team that I co-lead with my good friend Heather in Gig Harbor, Washington. Our team goal is to raise $50,000 for PPMD by November. Each fundraising event has brought our team new blessings, starting with our search to find a local 5K route that lead us to find another local family whose son has DMD, who didn't know about PPMD, what an… Continue
