Ave Maria! Joyful feast of St. Anthony of Padua–a great Franciscan saint!

I was able to run in the 13.1 Series today, and it was a fantastic road race! I set a new PR–2:10:30–running just under 10 minute miles. The field was under 5000, but still was a good showing of racers. Fans were sparse, but those who came out were very kind. Thanks to all the race volunteers–especially the Mt. Carmel HS students!

Thanks for your on-going prayers and support! I am $29,000 away from paying off my student loan debt! Please let me know if you can help me get one step closer to religious life. God bless you, and know of my prayers for you!
