My first marathon has come and gone. Yesterday was perfect for running and Love Without Boundaries raised $25,000! Drew and Andy Thompson also had a great time and yes, they both finished ahead of me. I caught some photos of the run and of our nation's capital. It was a long day but lot's of fun and I'm looking forward to the next marathon. Drew (one of the few 14 year olds there) ran a 4:47 and is definitely coming back next year to break all the records. I definitely have a time that I should be able to beat in the future. I'll post it next year if it's more respectable. I'm thinking about running the Nashville marathon in April if my legs are ready by then...

Karyn Purvis mention on adoption

I found this blog post on adoption and was glad to see Dr. Purvis mentioned. She has dedicated her life to helping children and families with practical information to deal with many of these issues. Dr. Karyn Purvis was also interviewed for this recent Newsweek article about adoption. More information on the TCU Institute of Child Development. The video below is also linked in the Newsweek story and has some interesting interviews with families.
