Tomorrow's Marathon Schedule

This year there is no fundraising, no bib number, no finish line and no goal of running a marathon, but I am planning to walk 26.2 miles tomorrow around Brevard to honor John's memory and remember the ALS marathon we "ran" together for 26 months and 20 days.  Most importantly, tomorrow is about setting apart time to celebrate and reflect on God's faithfulness through it all and to praise Him for the gift of Jesus, our hope for the race we run.  All who would like to and can join us are definitely welcomed!  Here are the times, locations and distances that are planned for the day.  (These are the loops planned, but feel free to join us and turn back around whenever you need to also!)

8:30-9:30am  -  Downtown Brevard 5k (Legacy Run Route) - Starts at the corner of Johnson and Jordan (3.1 miles)

10:00am-12:00pm - Brevard Community Church / Pisgah National Forest Bike Path / Activity Trail and Back (6.2 miles)

12:00-12:45pm - LUNCH BREAK at Brevard Community Church - feel free to visit then, even if you can't come walk!

1:00-4:40pm - Lowe's to Brevard High School / Gallimore Rd. / Downtown and Back (11 miles)
