A worthy cause...

Big news at our house...

My handsome husband, Mr KT, has started a blog. I know, I know, hard to believe but he has found a very worthy cause. You may have read in an earlier post that we were considering running a marathon. Now, to many of you this is no big deal. You have done multiple marathons or even ultra distance events. Just so you know, you guys rock. But P and I, we just don't do marathons. I spent too much time and money on physical therapy school learning about how to relieve symptoms of worn out joints and rehab torn and overused muscles and bony malalignments to train enough to run 26.2 miles. You would think I would freaking know better. I will be paying off my loans until my unborn, not-yet-conceived children are out of college, literally.

Yet, we have registered for the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington DC in October. Mr KT will be running for Team Running Strong. Click on his name to visit his blog to find out more about the organization and the fundraising he is doing for them. There is also a video of the mission trip he lead the youth on from our church where they took bikes and helmets up to the Pine Ridge reservation to the children. The video is about 4 minutes long. I really recommend that if you have time you watch it and let us know what you think. There is some neat stuff from the kids who were doing the mission work. They really came away from Pine Ridge with a paradigm shift I think, I know Mr KT did. He is very passionate about the Lakota people and I am proud of him for all the work he has done for them.
