A true friend...forgets about himself.

About two weeks ago my family participated in the broken wheel festival. We had so much fun. One of the things that stood out to me that day was the 5k run. Kenny(my husband) had been challenged to run. He hasn't ran in over 20 years. He has bad knees, terrible back problems and right now a broken shoulder that is in the healing process. Even though you would think all of these things would stop him from running they didn't...he couldn't turn down a challenge even if it would disable him for several days afterwards.
Our pastor Joe that challenged him became concerned (I think) and fixed Kenny out a plan to prepare him for this race. It was a two week plan and I don't know how much you can prepare in two weeks but it would have to help some.

A few days before the race Jeff one of Kenny's friends said that he would run/walk with Kenny. This made me feel good for two reasons. The first was so that someone would be with Kenny (just in case) and the second was because Jeff is a seasoned runner and could of ran this race in half the time. He chose to stay with his friend. This was such a wonderful testimony about Jeff.

It wasn't just about him it was about being a friend.

Thanks Jeff!
