27 Feb Count down to epic Relay launch (5 Mar to 13 Apr)!
A-Cross America Relay
We are 5 days out from the epic A-Cross America Relay. Nothing like it in the country. Are you signed up? How many legs are you running/walking? Are you traveling to cover legs elsewhere – another state? Those that do are the LIFE Runner Relay Guardians. Last year we saw Grant Fenske drive from Lafayette, LA to St. Joseph, MO (800 miles) to run legs that needed covered. Also, others like Colleen Sleicher’s family flew from NYC to Nevada to cover legs in a remote area. Check out the areas of most need. It’s Lent and that calls for sacrifice – redemptive running/walking. Push higher, run farther…All In Christ! Sign up at www.liferunners.org/across. We are doing something never done before. We can do it because we are LIFE Runners. Make it even the best kind of Lenten sacrifice and donate $100 to Save The Storks. They will send you a special shirt commemorating the epic Relay of 2014. How cool is that? Read more about it here: http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/pro-life-runners-to-hold-4000-mile-relay-race-beginning-march-5-to-support

Air Force Marathon
Another reminder alarm going off like the sirens of a firetruck going by in the middle of the night, it’s the Air Force Half/Full Marathon that is almost full and needs all LIFE Runners to stop, drop and register for the race before it is filled. The hotel also is filling but be sure to tell them you are with LIFE Runners. That hotel is the only one located within close walking distance of the banquet and provides transportation to the race. Can’t beat that with a stick. Hope everyone gets in on the great deal. They are preparing special meals to accommodate our race schedule too.
The Air Force Marathon announced today that the featured aircraft for the 2014 race is the F-35A ‘Lightning II.
The multi-role fighters are produced by Lockheed Martin and will be featured in the Air Force Marathon logo, medals and shirts.
“We’re very excited about this year’s plane,” said Rob Aguiar, race director. “The featured aircraft is such an integral part of the race because it represents the impact the Air Force has had on American history.”
Air Force Marathon events are already 70 percent full, with the 10K completely sold out.
Why Do You Run???
Send a cool picture of you in your LIFE Runner jersey with a note that says why you run. Post picture on LIFE Runners Facebook page. Karen Helsdon Patnaude is managing this campaign for LIFE Runners. Thanks to her great team work for life!
As we prepare to run the LIFE Runner Relay or other races/training runs…Don’t forget to pray the creed. Keep it before you. In your pocket/purse with the cards, or on the wall in your home or office – with new prints available thanks to Mid-MO LIFE Runner, Gyongyver Shaffer for the sketch of the image running towards the crucifix below. So awesome!
Please post and offer up prayers from our Prayer Wall – as you run/walk for Life. As we approach Lent, dig in and joyfully offer much sacrifice…it’s the LIFE Runners way. “Since we see The Way, let’s run together.” ~ St. Therese, The Little Flower
God first, Life always, Teammates forever! Heb 12:1-2.
