This Sunday, MAY 15, 2011, at 7:30AM local time, Jocelyn and I take off on a 20.73km journey in the St. Albert inaugural Run Wild 1/2 Marathon.  We enjoy running, although some people think of it as “speed walking” when they see us training.  Our goal on Sunday is to finish what we started.  Time is not a factor.  Finishing is.  We are of the mind that “slow and steady wins the race.”  I think of Christianity in the same way.  Our faith journey is a a marathon, not a sprint.  Its not about speed but stamina.  Its about finishing well.  Faith is a marathon of hope.  When I run, I think that one day…maybe soon…NP will host a “2km, 5km, 10km Run and Walk of Hope” for our Village of Hope in Zimbabwe.  Raising money and awareness for what we can do to offer hope to children orphaned by HIV/AIDS.  Better get training.

Speaking of a marathon, our “category” shifted once again on Sat. May 14th at 3:14am when our first grand-daughter, Quinn Marie Jones, was born to  Jean Marc and Angie of Leduc.  So now we’ll run the Marathon as “grand-parents.”  Wow.
