Weekend – Getting ready for race day!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day my friends! I love this day because it reminds me of the best St. Patrick’s Day I’ve ever had, back in 2013.

We aren’t celebrating today, because we are busy getting ready to leave. We are heading to Los Angeles so John can pick up his race packet for tomorrow’s big race.

As you probably know, he is running the LA Marathon tomorrow, barefoot. Crazy, right?

Have you ever run a marathon in your bare feet?

He has been training these past months and is ready for tomorrow. I am the support person for the run, and will be taking photos as well.

He is doing this as a fundraiser for the Thomas Flood and Fire victims, and all proceeds go to our local United Way to be distributed specifically for this cause.

Thank you to all who have donated!

He has raised a good amount through Crowd Rise and Facebook, and a few private donations. We will be keeping the Crowd Rise page open through the month in hopes to get more donations.

Let’s cheer him on!
