My friend Mark Oldham is running for a purpose this Saturday

My friend Mark Oldham is running for a purpose this Saturday: Mark is running in this week’s Country Music Marathon (he’s running the half) and has an essay in today’s Tennessean explaining why: to raise money for a Parkinson’s Disease cure. As for me: While Mark is running, I’ll probably be sleeping in, however, I won’t feel like a complete slacker now as I plan on contributing to Mark’s fundraising efforts.

By the way, rexblog commenter Lena is also running the half-marathon this Saturday.
