Hi, LIFE Runners –

We will line up in less than one week! Rich, Dave and me all fly in around 2:30 PM on Friday. Steve is going to pick us up at the baggage claim for my flight (Northwest Flt 1647 arriving 2:18 PM). We will check in at the Best Western Normandy (405 South 8th Street Minneapolis, MN 55404, 800-372-3131) and then find dinner. Anyone want to join us? On Saturday morning, let’s head over to the Expo right after breakfast. We will meet Aaron/Brenda at the Expo, as they are staying in a different hotel. We will pick up Doug Sat at 3 PM, go to Mass somewhere at 5 PM, and then find a pre-race pasta meal somewhere. I will have a GPS and i-phone to find what we need. I have Doug’s info to pick up his race packet for him at the Expo.
UPDATE: Angi, Paige and me ran for ProLife in the Quad Cities yesterday. Angi ran her fastest half marathon, hit the wall, and prayed her way to 26.2 miles…for ProLife! I ran the Quad Cities 5K with Paige (9)…Paige did it in 30:02 – youngest female, #1/3 div, 118/437 overall in her first race. Many people commented on our ProLife jerseys!
TRAINING (taper wk): The TC Marathon slogan is “train your body, prepare your soul.” Be sure to follow the taper week schedule…it is an important part of the preparation. Also, try not to do any new physical fitness activity this week. Although we taper physically, let’s ramp it up spiritually as we prepare our soul to defend the unborn!

PROLIFE FUND RAISER: Consider asking your friends/family to sponsor you for $/mile to raise $ for an ultrasound machine at Woman’s Answer Medical Center. We can give Rich our donations this weekend.
Run for ProLife!
