The Home Stretch

Team One Less,

Race day is fast approaching! I hope everyone is feeling good or at least willing to complete their race, whether its 13.1 or 26.2. If anyone wants to run this weekend, let me know.

Also, if you have any fund raising to turn just contact me and we can meet up to get it in the right hands. I would not recommend bringing it to the Nashville race, just to reduce the chance of losing it in transport.

We are hoping to eat together Friday night in Nashville. Our Plan A, dinner at the governors mansion, is not happening. The Haslams have an event that evening. If anyone has a viable option let us know soon!

Any questions about the Nashville weekend, let me know. You should have received an email from the Nashville Marathon if you are registered.

One Race Down - One to Go


First off I want to congratulate everyone who ran on Sunday!  Nice work.  I feel like we all exceeded our expectations and had a great time.  Thanks for all those who came out and cheered us on, that was a big help.  I hope this motivates everyone for Nashville!  Keep up the training.

Fund Raising:  If you have not started, time is getting low.  If we need to meet or talk about anything let me know.  Sarah and I are currently fund raising from non-Knoxville sources.  If you all are asking those people that everyone knows try and communicate about it.  We do not want to ask the same people numerous times.  I still have some extra copies of fund raising pamphlets and forms so let me know if you need some.  If you can't remember the fund raising details let me know and I can send you the email with all the details.

Shirts: we are getting "dri-fit" shirts for the Nashville race.  If you want one, or more, let me know so we can get a number.  As of right now you will have to purchase the shirt.  It will not be more than $25.  I need your size as well.

Continue to pray for both families and the kids. 

peace, Ace

Saturday Night Dinner!


We are on for dinner this Saturday night!  Meet at the Moldrup's home at 6:00pm.  I need to know how many people are coming to make sure we know how much food to have.  Please reply to this with a comment or send me an email please.  We will be having Renee's world famous spaghetti, bread, and salad.  No need to bring anything, everything is provided.  Don't forget to pick up your packet on Saturday at the convention center.  That is important if you want to run on Sunday.  Can't wait to have everyone together!
