Run for the Stars: Finishing What I Started

Yesterday I walked the 5k Run for the Stars race in Wheaton, benefiting College Church’s great ministry to the developmentally disabled and their families. At the end, I didn’t want this to be about me, but with the crowd watching, I couldn’t resist a little theatrics. I was dead last, but no matter: I had finished what I had started.

I couldn’t have done it without Christine, my lovely and encouraging wife. It was harder than I thought it would be, and she kept me going–as did the cheers of friends!

I was also thrilled to be greeted at the finish by my beautiful daughter, Laura, who also participated in this race.

Thanks to my friend Chris Arndt, who took these photos.
