This is a note from Margaret:
Breast cancer just got personal. I have been diagnosed with invasive breast cancer. We humbly ask for your prayers. Surgery is scheduled this Friday November 21st. (Future updates will be posted at jhbelljr.net.) It is my firm belief that I have the very best team in place to run this race with me. This will be my ultra marathon. I am ready to run this race because of all of you. Those of you who stand at the start with me and cheer me on with words of encouragement, support,and love. Those of you who are setting up aid stations all along the way. Those of you who will help pace. Those of you who will run with me through the toughest miles. Those of you who will be along the route shouting empowering messages and waving cowbells. Those of you who will be waiting at the finish line cheering and celebrating. When the starter’s gun goes off this Friday at 12 noon please know that John, Megan, Katie, and I are filled with deep gratitude and abundant hope. And we are ready . . . because of all of you.
Love to all,
