Yeah, I know it’s only January 17th, but I’ve already had an amazing 2008! It all began when my wife and I celebrated our 10th anniversary on a 7-day Carribean Cruise! Our church suprised us with this amazing gift and we had the time of our lives! You can see pictures and read in our trip journal here, if you’re interested.
I also ran the Chevron Houston Marathon last Sunday, January 13th. Praise God that I finished, although slower than I would have like–about 5 hours and 15 minutes. You can visit the Marathon site to see my triumphant finish, but I must warn you it’s so fast you might have a hard time following it. (: Actually you’ll be able to tell just how much pain I was in if you watch me hobble across th finish line!
Thanks to everyone who prayed that I would finish and not be injured! I’m looking forward to the next 11 months with great anticipation!
