One week from today Brian and I will be headed to Greece! On November 10th we will be running the Athens Classic Marathon!
This summer we celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary. We are blessed beyond words by the Lord’s gift of marriage and we like to celebrate that Fifteen years ago we started a tradition to take an anniversary trip every five years. We have celebrated our “fives” in Colorado, Alaska and St Thomas. Three years ago we started the adventure of long distance running. Since that time we have run two half marathons and two full marathons (San Antonio & Pittsburgh pictured here). We thought it would be awesome to combine these two things and run a marathon during our 20th anniversary celebration. We chose Athens, Greece and the site of the first original marathon!
We would like to invite other married couples to “join” us on our run and celebration. While running on Nov 10th we plan to pray for a different married couple each mile. That would be 26 couples! We desire to pray the Lord’s blessing on these couples and give thanks for the blessing He has given to us. Would you and your spouse like to be one of our 26? We would love to have you join us in this way!
Here is what to do:
1. Send us word “Add us to your marathon prayer list!” You can do so through a comment on the blog, on FaceBook, on twitter or on Instagram.
2. If you have a special mile number you would like us to pray for you and your spouse on, be sure to include that info. Maybe your anniversary is on the 10th so you would like us to pray for you on mile 10… We will try to honor your mile request!
3. On November 10th post a picture of your wedding day on Facebook, twitter or Instagram and tell one thing you love about marriage. Be sure to tag us in someway so we can see your post.
