Final Call for Carlsbad Half Marathon!

It's been a long time since I've updated my running status here on Different Frequencies. I didn't want to draw a lot of undo attention to the fact that I'm running the half marathon this weekend because I didn't want to fail and I didn't want to be prideful.

Yet I am confident. I have a great running partner in Chris G who has been faithful to help me on my long runs so far (our longest was officially 11.7 miles). I have no doubt that, barring injury, I will finish the 13.1 miles required of me on Sunday. Still, I didn't want to turn this blog into a vehicle for my accomplishments.

However, the real reason for bringing this up is to talk about my daughter's cystic fibrosis (CF). CF is nasty, and my family has dealt with it too much lately. My daughter had all of her labs a few weeks ago and liver function came back high, which could mean that the CF is affecting her liver as well. After some follow-on tests, we have found that the labs must have been a fluke because the liver is running well. Praise God! But it brings to mind yet again the reason why I chose the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation as my charity of choice for the half marathon.

And it's why I ask you once again, one last time, to consider donating to my Half Marathon fundraising. I am $105 from my goal of $300 and I hope to be there by the end of the week. If you have have even just some spare change lying around, I can guarantee that the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation can put it to good use! Thanks!

Thank you again and I'll update the race results on Monday of next week!
