Run Thru History : Vicksburg
Saturday March 3 is the 33rd annual Run Thru History at Vicksburg National Military Park. I’ll travel the 4 hours or so from my home on Friday afternoon and spend some time getting to know my sweet friends C and M’s foster sons that just came to live with them a few months ago. I was in Vicksburg last for the Over the River Run in October. At that time, they were reeling from the loss of a foster child that had too many issues to stay in their home and they were beginning to lose hope after months of lots of work and little progress in building the family they’ve wanted so badly. I’m looking forward to meeting the little buggers who have completely captivated my friends’ hearts. I think they might finally have the family they were suppose to have all along. I wish I had time to ride my bike thru the park again on this trip but I have a feeling I won’t since I plan to run, have lunch and head back home so I can go cheer for friends at the Little Rock Marathon on Sunday morning.
In preparation I had my 5 mile hilly run from Sunday followed by a big fat goose egg for exercise on Monday.
