Honolulu Marathon

I've agreed to run the Honolulu Marathon on December 9 this year with a friend that is trying to put together a team to run on behalf of children's autism. They have a son that has been diagnosed as autistic and they have gotten a commitment from a local family center for autism to sponsor us if we can raise $5,000 each in donations before the race. I think it is doable and it would be fun to run with him and his wife. They are pastors at one of our church campuses and have been friends with us since just after we joined the church two years ago.

I will have more details soon and will post a link on the blog to show how I'm doing in finding donors and sponsors. It's a great commitment I think and I'm looking forward to the run. It will take the place of the Dallas White Rock Lake Marathon in December for me, I need to update my list of races after this I know.
