I’m a little uncertain as to what I’m getting into, but I’m going to be running this spring & summer. I am SO NOT a runner. But I’m going to do it. First of all, it’s for Samantha. Second, it’s about getting closer to God. Third, I really do need to get in shape. It’s been pretty bad for the last year. Granted, for four months I had a good excuse. But now it’s just pathetic, especially since I have a gym membership that I’m paying for and all. I just never seem to get there.

I’m writing to invite you along on this journey with us. It’s a Bible study and exercise all rolled into one, culminating in a 5K. The study is to help us draw closer to God, and the 5K will raise money for Samantha’s scholarship fund at our school. We are in the process of setting up a blog just for this study so that those in other places can join us. You can run, pledge to sponsor a runner, whatever. If you aren’t local, we encourage you to find a 5K in your area to run.

Stay tuned for more information as we have it! And thanks for all of the prayers and support during this time. For more information, check out Samantha’s Caringbridge page: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/samanthapittock/journal
