Perseverance.  Focus.  Endurance.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, (2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.)

The Fargo Marathon/Half Marathon

So, this weekend I was in Fargo, North Dakota participating in one of the Midwest's premier races. This year's theme was "Fargo's Rockin' Marathon." It was a great running environment that touted "a band every mile." (The local bands were actually not too shabby.)

In short, it was a great race and a great day.

 I enjoyed connecting with both old and new friends (CoriAnn, LeAnn, and Kendra.)   And for me, this race wasn't about a personal best, but rather enjoying the experience.

After experiencing this welcoming atmosphere, one thing is for sure... The people of Fargo/Moorhead really know how to host a first class event. I would encourage anyone who is contemplating coming to the "Northern Plains" to run this race... to make the trip. You won't be disappointed. I am sure this will not be the last time I will run this race.

"Ya, Sure, You Betcha. We rocked it don't cha know!"
