Chosen Marathon 2013

Adam here -

It’s that time again!  We are training for and running in the Chosen Marathon for adoption in New Braunfels, TX.  We didn’t know if we would create a team again this year but decided to jump in and make it happen.  Most of you remember that we did the race last year to get support for our adoption.  The funds raised as well as the non-financial support (prayers, awareness) were tremendous and helped to offset the cost of the adoption last year and we thank everyone that helped us in that event.  We truly could not have made it through without all the support we received.

2013 Chosen Marathon is on October 26th in New Braunfels, TX.  The event allows adopting families to raise awareness and funds for their adoption by building a team for the race.  Also, there is an option for the non-runner to support a team and not run.

The race has three events: Full Marathon 26.2 miles, Half Marathon 13.1 miles, and kids fun run 1 mile.  Also, as stated above, there is an option in the registration page to be a ‘sleepwalker’.  This gives people the opportunity to support a team without attending the race

The best support we can ask for is prayer and encouragement throughout the process.  When people ask me how Katti and I get through the tough emotional journey that is adoption, I tell them that it is not just the two of us.  God, our family, friends, and countless others - The prayer and encouragement we have received from everyone listed above has picked us up, pushed us along, and kept us on our feet.  Again we ask for this support.  If you would like to support financially, you can sign up for the race either as a participant or sleepwalker or donate directly to our team, Baby Steps.

Thanks again for your support both in the past year as well as upcoming.  Without the overwhelming support we have received we would not be where we are today.  Thanks you – Much Love!

Adam & Kate
