raised of a $1,000.00 goal
There’s really two things you should know about me with regards to me asking you for money.
1) I had a really good time doing my first Spartan and it destroyed me physically. I swore I would never do another one and had a terrible attitude about it. I wasn’t prepared for the uphill (literally) battle and my competitive nature got the best of me. Since I couldn’t crush the race I had a bad attitude about it. I’m not overly proud about that….but that’s the way I was. Now I am challenging myself to complete the Spartan in Diablo Grande with a great attitude (regardless of how good or bad it goes) and raise some money for a cause I truly believe in.
2) My wife and I have talked about adoption and how we’d love to be a part of it since before we were even married. Since then we’ve had two beautiful biological daughters. We thought our family was complete. At some point after our kids were born we felt adoption was something we were called to do. That being said we signed up for adoption classes and started the process. Somewhere along the way God put a halt to our plans. While we still have a passion for adoption and feel that at some point we will welcome another child into our home now is not the time.
So, here it is. I’ve signed up for a race I said I’d never do again and asking you to help a good cause through my pain, lol. There are so many children out there who need a safe and loving environment to grow, thrive and call a family.
