It’s a beautiful Friday here and we are looking forward to a weekend of marathon activities with Julia and Audra. We’ve got the race Expo tomorrow and 26.2 miles on Sunday. We are definitely going to pray, watch Julia run, and drink coffee.
In the spirit of supporting Julia on her “Run for the Nuns” in support of A Nun’s Life Ministry, the Sisters have watch all 634 minutes of Rocky footage and were inspired to have their own Rocky moment. Julia joined in and Audra made the video happen!
Consider the extreme lengths that we'd go to in order to keep the ministry growing … and please don’t make us run any more! Make Julia run instead! Please donate $26.20… which is $1.00 for each mile that Julia is running.
The race starts at 6:45 a.m. So send prayers Julia’s way and for all the runners that they trust in their training, enjoy the experience, and be safe. We invite you to join in our prayers and good wishes for Julia. Please offer a word of blessing for Julia using the comment box below.

Dear Julia, A prayer of blessing for you from Day by Day: The Notre Dame Prayerbook for Students … “Run by my side – live in my heartbeat; give strength to my steps. As the cold confronts me, as the wind pushes me, I know you surround me. As the sun warms me, as the rain cleanses me, I know you are touching me, challenging me, loving me. And so I give you this run; thank you for matching my stride. Amen.”

Having just started running, I can only imagine what it feels like to run a marathon! I’m going to try to run this weekend and I will think of you. Go for it!

I’m impressed, Julia, at your dedication and willingness to go the distance for a good cause! I’m not a runner, but I’ll drink a couple extra cups of coffee and pray for you!
