At age 48, a half-marathon hurts like a marathon did at age 23.

But, thanks to your kind prayers, I crossed in one piece.

We ran past the Civil-War Battle-of-Chattanooga cemetery, among other resting places of the dead, so I said a lot of prayers. And the loving souls helped me get to the finish.

If you count all the marathons I have run as two, then throw in all the half-marathons, your unworthy servant just finished my twenty-second half-marathon.

Heading to church for Mass, and I feel like the king of the world. Praised be Jesus Christ!

  1. We’ll done brother. Glad we have no record of Jesus running marathons (or even running). My running days are behind me (except for the occasion running late!). Love you brother, EWKY (read Nehemiah 1 at National Presbyterian Church this morning)
