This past weekend I had the pleasure of being among the thousands of people in the world who enjoy mixing saving lives and exercise. The St Jude Memphis Marathon weekend featured a full 26.2 mile marathon, a 13.1 mile half marathon and 5k run too. The past few years I, along with my buddies Tracy Wirtz and Winky Dinky Dawg, have traveled to Memphis to be a part of this inspiring weekend.

We have seen this event grow bigger and better every year. We also see more and more familiar faces every year too. Danielle's Kajun Krewe, the good folks that put on Danielle's Rhythm and Blues in Henderson were there again this year. They brought a bus load of supporters from Iberia and surrounding parishes.

If you are a runner, or a walker I invite you to join us next year in Memphis for St Jude Marathon Weekend. I promise you will leave filled with hope, inspiration and a belly full of barbeque. If you just can't wait until next December to run for St Jude check out the Nashville Marathon weekend. It is coming up in April.
