Affliction

I have recently had the unfortunate opportunity of working with a family in the process of a divorce.  As a counselor it will always be hard to watch so much pain, hurt and confusion, with no ability at times to help.  But I know from experience that divorce (or any other conflict) is not beyond our ability to overcome.  God wants to use our pain and suffering to further His kingdom, and to strengthen our dependence and relationship with Him.  We can be confident that He that began a good work, will perfect it (Phil. 1:6).

2 Cor. 4:17, "For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison,"

First of all this is a gorgeous wtiebse well done.Questions:1) is this course suitable to wearing 5-fingers, as we are currently training in them for our summer races?2) I am a slow runner, but always finish no matter the distance. I'm hoping you will not have sweepers to sweep me out of the run if I'm slow.3) we know the course is already set, but would you consider having the prize giving or after drinks as part of the new main street Sunday Social? The committee is looking for events that could connect with their new closed off main street concept (ie: it would have been great to have the finish down main street). Just a suggestion Many thanks and looking forward to participating in this new run!
