A quick distraction at lunch. We were eating in Joplin, Missouri and I hijacked the road trip to show MC and Jim the area that was destroyed by the tornado a few years ago. I was there the day after, and Darco came a year later on a mission trip. I have two photos I’d like to share with you:
Absolutely massive new high school. It’s mind blowing to think that I once had a job interview with that school. It was so encouraging to see the ongoing progress for this city that has gone through so much.
Big thanks to Kansas City Bravery Clothing for an epic tank.
Darco and I grabbed our race packets down in Fayetteville (including a complimentary pint glass from a local brewery), and headed back to the family reunion.
About an hour later I was in the back patio watching a fire, thinking about the race tomorrow.
Now…after some quick grapes, it’s time for bed. Running comes early tomorrow.
