St. Jude Country Music Marathon Inspiration - 04/28/14

I had an amazing time over the weekend as a spectator at the Country Music Marathon. Last year, I ran the half marathon in the pouring rain... even though I had to sit the run out this year because of my bad allergies- it was an amazing experience to get an up close look at the St. Jude Heroes who participate every year.

Before I found out I'd that I'd have to sit out the run this year, I was training with Steve Blume. He is an incredible St. Jude local hero, and he is so dedicated to raising money for the St. Jude mission. I attended the Heroes Pasta Party with him on Friday night. At the dinner runners not only prepped for the big day with huge pasta meals, the program also highlighted the major fundraisers and introduced everyone to a St. Jude family. In addition, they had live entertainment- incredible song writers performed!

I am so impressed with all the Heroes and how hard they work to raise funds for St. Jude. Next year, I will absolutely join their mission and sing up for the half marathon as Hero. Steve Blume has inspired me!

What inspires you?

JETS-REX-BUMGARNER

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- Michael Vick? Geno Smith? New York Jets coach Rex Ryan knows who he wants as quarterback for his limping team. Ryan jokes they're "gonna go with that Bumgarner guy." Madison Bumgarner is the San Francisco Giants ace and World Series MVP. Bumgarner secured the Giants a Game 7 series victory with a five-inning save. He had two series wins as a starter, too. The Jets are 1-and-7 this season, including seven straight losses. Bumgarner likely won't be available for the Jets on Sunday, so Ryan says he's going with his own lefty, Vick.

WHISKEY WAR

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- It's Jack versus George in Tennessee -- in a battle over the legal definition of Tennessee whiskey. The parent company of Jack Daniels supports the law that includes requiring Tennessee whiskey to be made from 51 percent corn, aged in new charred oak barrels and a minimum of 80 proof. The British corporate parent of George Dickel contends those regs are too restrictive. A state subcommittee heard testimony on the issue yesterday. Lawmakers are expected to consider changes to the Tennessee whiskey law in January.

DALLAS ZOO-GIRAFFE

DALLAS (AP) -- He's an awfully big newborn -- six feet tall and about 120 pounds. But this big, little guy has an even taller mom. The Dallas Zoo has a new giraffe. The healthy male calf was born Sunday and the birth was announced Wednesday. The calf doesn't have a name yet. The Dallas Zoo's giraffe herd has now grown to a dozen.

COYOTES-QUEENS ZOO

NEW YORK (AP) -- New York City has five new residents. They're orphaned coyote pups who have a new home at the Queens Zoo. The animals were rescued in Massachusetts, where they were taken to a wildlife rehabilitator. Now, the coyotes have their own exhibit in Queens. The Wildlife Conservation Society's Queens Zoo specializes in animals from the Americas. The pups are the only coyotes on exhibit there.
