Michael is Off to NYC Marathon

It is official.  Michael has left for NYC!

Woke up at 5:30am and though some lights were on in the kitchen, Michael was gone.  His flight leaves at 6:45am and he should arrive in NYC around 9:30am.  He’ll meet up with his sister Tricia when her flight gets in and then they are off to meet the woman whose apartment they are subletting for the weekend. 

Michael is excited.  He just wants “to get there already.”  He’s like a horse waiting at the race gate. 

He told us the marathon will be televised on 11-2 locally.  (That’s the digital television station.)  There is a special tracker at the marathon website that the kids and I can use to find out where he is throughout the race.  I think the kids will enjoy that.

Michael’s group is scheduled to begin running at 9:40am.   Please pray for him.  He will be praying for you by name on his wrist band throughout the race. 

Thanks to all who have supported the troops and Michael on this journey!
