Here we go again !

I am not sure of exactly the format that this year's run is going to take, but I am committing to something right now.  We have a JDRF walk planning committee meeting tomorrow night and one of the things on the agenda is how far I will go, how long I will go, and how much I will hope to raise.
I am hoping to motivate more people to raise money for JDRF at the State College walk. Last year, the walkers raised about twice as much as the year before. It might be too much to expect that again, but last year each registered walker raised an average of under $200.  I would like to make a challenge of some sort that would motivate others.  I am not making little of the efforts made last year, just trying to find my place in the process.  I was thinking of something like I will run a mile for each $___ raised, or a minute for each $___ raised, or an hour for each $___ raised.  You get the idea.

I am really behind in training and need to work hard to catch up.  It is all about motivation and I know now that I am committed and don't want to disappoint.  Keep the pressure on me!

The Megatransect filled all available spots with 850 entrants in 48 hours.  Amazing, and a tribute to the wonderful volunteers that make it happen.  Thanks especially to Dave and Jeanne Hunter who have done so much, so well.

1 Timothy 4:8  NIV "For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding 
promise for both the present life and the life to come."
