The Big Easy
This coming weekend my wife, Kiki, and I will travel to New Orleans to represent TEAM 413 at the Mardi Gras Rock 'n' Roll Marathon. It should be a fantastic event and we look forward to it with great anticipation.
So much has happened in New Orleans over the past few years. The horrors of Katrina are still fresh on the mind of people from that region. However, much has been done to repair the hearts of the wonderful people of south Louisiana and the Gulf Coast.
The New Orleans Saints won the Super Bowl but, it was more than a win. It was a referendum of hope for the community, the state, and the region. It was a healing of the heart and soul of a city. Now, another large event is being delivered to the city New Orleans in the form of the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon Series. This is going to be huge for this city!
We look forward to being a part of this great sporting event. We look forward to meeting a bunch of outstanding people who have been through much but who have grown through the circumstances that have come their way. We are blessed to be part of the "recovery" of a magnificent city and people.
If you are in the Big Easy this weekend, come by and say hello at the marathon expo. We have a lot of great things planned. I'll be writing about the details in the next few days.
Under HIS Grace...
