Thanks to Bill and Sheila Ford, who hosted the first annual "Will Run For Bagels" training run in Stillwater on Saturday May 19th. Bill owns the Old School Bagel Cafe Stillwater, and provided the tasty bagels that helped energize the runners throughout the night (baked by Bill himself!). The trail was a 15-mile out and back on the outskirts of Stillwater. About 20 runners enjoyed cool weather from the thunderstorms flanking them but nobody got wet. Everyone had a good run starting 8pm with the last coming in at 4am:
- A dozen or so of Stillwater's Old School Bagel Couch to 5k group went 3 miles
- Simone Halstead: 10 miles
- Sheila Ford says she "only" ran 11 miles
- Arnold Begay, Candace Brown, Cassie Russell: 15 miles
- Bill Ford, Ken Childress, Bill Richardson, Deann Deatheredge, Vicky Arterburn, Russell Bennett: 30 miles
- Kathy Hoover: 33 miles

It was such a pleasure having the Autism Center crew around. And nice shoes Jennifer - good job looking good while doing good!

Lilian Grace Whitten, Warrior Princess, soared above and beyond what was expected of her life. Her first breath was supposed to be her last. She lived 103 glorious days on this earth before earning her wings. God gave us the reason why she was here through the following scripture: “So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through FAITH. And I pray that you being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the LOVE of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge - that you may be filled to the measure of all the FULLNESS OF GOD.” Ephesians 3:17-19
The Warrior Princess Trail Run proceeds will benefit babies diagnosed with T18 & T13 chromosomal disease and their families by providing assistance, support and resources as needed.
Visit http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/liliangracewhitten/journal for more of our story!
This is just the beginning for this foundation.
We look forward to working with current and future donors in helping T18/T13 families in some small way.
This years race is on a Wednesday night, April 25th at 6:00 PM. It's at the Keystone State Park on the east side of the highway. There will be lots of cars, and signs pointing the way. Some pictures of the course.

Luke, the youngest person to achieve Marathon Maniacs, has an awesome story. Luke started training for a marathon, and lost 40 lbs in the process. He is on a mission to run 12 marathons in 12 months, and will no doubt eclipse that goal and who knows what else. He has inspired several of his friends at school, some of their parents, and even some of his teachers to join his quest in marathon running. Very inspiring!!!

Any medal for running a marathon is sweet. And you know--size isn't everything. But DANG it's sure cool. Someone said the medal was as big as a hubcap....
....I say it's BIGGER.

Huge thanks to the volunteers who stood out and froze while getting people signed in, helping with awarding the winnings after the run, and also those on the course dealing cards.
Ray is working on assembling his poker team, and also keeping his nose warm.
Brian brought his Star Trek hat out of the closet.
Coach Kathy explains the rules of poker. 5 card stud--not Go Fish!!!
One of the most inspirational shirts ever. I can think of no better reason to run. (Well, that's a good one at least!)
Have to admit, since I was absent from the run, I do not know the story of Sherry. Anyone?
Robert cruising to the finish--about mile three in his run.
A mob of poker players approach the pedestrian bridge. Cards in hand--wonder if there's an ace up their sleeves?
Mitch and Kathy--dealers? Better not deal from the bottom of the deck!!
Here's a shady dealer. Roman passes out the two of clubs.
Misty and Darcy talk about the odds of drawing into an inside straight.
Read her face--Venus has a good hand.
Susan and Laurie scheming. Which one has the winning hand??
Special thanks to Susan Westmoreland, who took every one of these awesome pictures, and allowed me to snatch them from Facebook. Seems the usual photographer stayed at home
