Later that day, Brady Murray - Iron Man and founder of RODS Racing - sends me this email:
I'll match that pledge. $1 for every mile, if you go break 2:10, I'll make it $5 / mile. You'd be amazed at what you can do when racing for a cause! Start easy, work into it and then finish strong! You got this!Racing for a cause. I thought about that tonight as I ran 4 miles on a hilly course at a 9:30 pace. God didn't adopt me into His family so that I could curl up on the couch. He's given me the privilege and responsibility to get up and attempt great things. Great things for His glory. Great things like bringing two young people out of an orphanage and into a home. And if that means I've got to break out of my comfortable pace, that's OK I'm expecting great things from God.
