Team World Vision Day 10

TWV Day 9…Orion
Sometimes the reward is unexpected… Taking on a physical challenge for a higher purpose has many unexpected benefits. Thanks for all your support!

TWV Day 8…Yuck

TWV Day 6…together

Today a few of us ran together on the longest run yet in our Team World Vision marathon training plan. We make a little more progress each time, which is a bonus. It was a beautiful day in the park. Longer days lay ahead, but today was nothing but fun… Thanks to all who have donated!
If you haven’t, please consider sponsoring my run. Donations of any amount are accepted by World Vision. $50 will provide clean water to one person for one year.

TWV Training Day 5

A nice evening run with my wife tonight! We covered a tiny bit more distance and felt better doing it so I guess that’s progress. But real progress will be eliminating the need for fresh water in our lifetimes. $50 will supply one person fresh water for one year.

Beautiful Day 4…

What can I say? It’s so beautiful today! Such an incredibly small sacrifice so that others can have access to the source of life. I’m thankful today for God’s grace. Strength for life and hope for the future… Thank you to all who have sponsored me at:

Day 3…Progress on a Perfect Day

Prayers appreciated…

Watch the video above for some testimonials about the decision to invest in people who need clean water. I can’t imagine waking up each day wondering if my family will have clean water to drink. I am moved to partner with others on the front lines of saving lives. World Vision is a great organization seeking to share Christ’s compassion with those in need. The beauty of this opportunity is how it changes my life and the lives of my friends who share in the journey with me. As our lives are changed by this experience, others will receive access to clean water. Please pray for me and do what you can for those in need.

A Journey Begins… Day 2 of World Vision Marathon Training

Joe Maddon agrees to 5-year contract to manage the Cubs


Today the Cubs hired their 54th manager. I was on the scene to take in the reconstruction and catch a glimpse of the press conference. Joe Maddon is excited to get to work. He’s already aiming for the postseason in 2015! There was a buzz in the air. Partly from excitement and partly because of the heavy equipment deconstructing the old bleachers to make way for the jumbotron and other stadium upgrades. Maddon called Wrigley a cathedral; a magical place. Spirits were on the rise.
It feels like more than a new stadium is coming together. It feels like a new era. It did not come without 107 years of pain and a difficult transition between managers. But it feels like something big has started at Clark and Addison!

Joe Maddon was introduced as the Chicago Cubs’ 54th manager at a news conference Monday.

Maddon, 60, will receive a five-year contract worth at least $25 million, a source confirmed to the Chicago Tribune.

He comes to the North Siders after leading the Tampa Bay Rays to four play-off berths in nine seasons.

Maddon is well known for his eccentric motivational stunts, like bringing live penguins into the team clubhouse and hiring bands to play behind players taking batting practice.
