Get on YOUR running shoes!
There's still time to register with our off-site team (ALL FOR!) for the Nun Run!  If you are running with us, you will have the opportunity to submit your times for an chance to win some great Catholic prizes. We have benefited from the generosity of several great sponsors so we will be expanding the prize categories. More information on that to come. For now, just make sure you sign up in time (that would be today, March 2nd) to get your t-shirt and race number by the run on March 12th. You can sign up all the way through March 11th... you'll just have to wait for your t-shirt. :)

Head on over to Lena's for more information.

The nuns are still looking for runners/walkers in the following states to fill in the Nun Run map:

Alaska
Delaware
Hawaii
Montana
Rhode Island
South Carolina
Utah
Vermont

For all you runners, there are 10K and 5K categories and a 1 mile walk for those of you who prefer that pace.

My own training is going rather slowly. Four months postpartum is a rather difficult time for me to run anywhere but across the living room. However, I have signed on for the 5K and am praying for weather lovely enough to be able to do it outside. I am currently unable to run the full distance... actually, I'm currently unable to run even half the distance... but I'm working on it! Whatever I am able to give I want to give ALL FOR Jesus through Mary! Join me?
