The Bass Pro event is unlike any other that I attend - It is off the hook! Melissa Bondy does an outstanding job putting on this festival which is truly a community wide event. Bass Pro Shops brought their invited speakers in a day early so we could visit with people from across the area. So, we got to town on Thursday afternoon.

The evening before I finish the 413 mile trek, I'll be speaking at the pasta dinner at the Fargo Marathon. I invite anyone who can be at this world class event to be there to celebrate with us at the finish line on May 21. We'll be having a TEAM 413 - GRACERUNNER JOURNEY CELEBRATION after the race. Details on this event will follow in the weeks ahead.
As for now -- I have to get to training!
God bless all of you for your service to HIM!
Under HIS Grace...
