Happy 4th of July

We wish all of you a safe and happy 4th of July in your communities and hope that you enjoy your time with family and friends, wherever you may be. For Kelly and I, it means that we are in Seward. Each year I have been blessed with good health to be able to run the Mount Marathon race, thank you Lord. This race takes hundreds of runners up Mount Marathon. For the men, there are approximately 300 of us climbing up the 2,974 foot mountain. At the top there is a turn around point and then it’s all downhill. And in years past, we enjoyed cheering on our kids as they ran their own race – great memories. This year will be my 15th year, a tradition that I hope will continue for as long as we are able.
