Blessings to everyone.
Not much has happened in the way of "events" as most of us are on self -quarantine due to COVID-19. All of the public events that we WOULD HAVE participated in have been cancelled or at least postponed.
February had been a tough month as Post Oak Challenge was indeed a "challenge". Things didn't go as planned, but we rolled with it & pulled off a 25 km finish. Looking to the future, we are planning on running the Tulsa Urban Adventure in September (likely the 50 miler) & the 100k at Pumpkin Holler Hunnerd in October. Although my studies for the Deaconnate are continuing and I am reading more than ever, actual face-to-face class time have been put on hold as well due to COVID-19. I am prayerfully hopeful that things will begin to open back up soon.
With all of the time spent at home, I am getting in more mileage, so I am hopeful that I will be in good shape for both events later in the year.
I WILL SAY though, that the Chisholm Trail Run is back in my mind. I am hoping to up my plans for it in 2021; although I HAVE HAD thoughts of just waiting for my 65th birthday - - - - NAH! It's too far away!
Stay tuned & God Bless;

As a mother of a son who died of cancer and had no insurance, the costs were horrible. Not just the physical and mental costs, but the monetary cost required to support that person. We had to make many trips to the OU Medical center in order for Jason to get his treatment. Know No Boundaries was a God Send to our family. Ken ran a 100 mile race and recruited sponsors for the race. The monies raised were donated to Jason to support his treatments and trips to and from the OU Medical Center. Ken and the Know No Boundaries family not only supplied monetary support, but spiritual support with prayers and visits to Jason and our family. I cannot explain how much we appreciate the support and care that Know No Boundaries provided. I have seen several other families who have benefited from this organization and I am sure that they all appreciate the assistance that they received. This is truly a calling from God for Kenand the supporters of this organization. Without their support, it would have been a much harder road to travel.

Our son, Dillon received a specially made jogging stroller from Know No Boundaries in 2012. It allowed us to run WITH Dillon , take walks with him or just bing outside. Five years later, Dillon is still enjoying it. Thank you Ken and Know No Boundaries.
