Nun Run 2011 - WOW!

Sr. John-Mark rejoicing that the 10K is behind her!!!  Way to Go Sister!!!
Hello faithful blog followers!  Here I am back in the saddle again after fighting a nasty flu that descended on me the afternoon of the Run.  I am just now getting to feel a bit better and well enough to update you all on this past Saturday's monumental NUN RUN.

For everyone who was there you know what an absolutely perfect day it was from start to finish.  Our wonderful super photographer Jeff Fuentebella will be uploading his awesome photos soon and we will share the link! 

Here are a few photos to enjoy as we await the rest:
Rick Lee and Fr. Kline - our Nun Run Announcers!

Bishop Nevares and Sr. Esther Marie with 2 of our young runners!

Nothing like the finish line!!!

Way to Go, Ladies!!!

The Nuns on Channel 12 Hero Central!

Fox and Friends!

Enjoy this Fox and Friends Video of the spot that aired this morning on FoxNews.  A great big thank you to FOX for helping us publicize not only the NUN RUN, but also our fund-raising drive for the new Monastery! 

In other news, Alaska signed up this morning.  That leaves only MT, UT, and HI!  Come on, we want every state to be represented and we are so close to this goal!!!!!!

Last minute registrations are pouring in!  If you are planning on coming to the Run and haven't yet registered, why wait? :) Register today!!!!

OK everyone - Tomorrow is not only Ash Wednesday (happy lent everyone, a more spiritual post about this holy season will be forthcoming!), but it is also the day on which the Sisters will appear on Fox & Friends.  

This is the latest that we have heard:   The Show runs begins 6:00am EST.  And they do not time delay - so that means it comes on at 4 am here in AZ.  Now the Sisters are slotted to appear at 6:30 EST (which unfortunately is 4:30 Arizona time).  So set your TIVO and be sure to watch it when you get out of bed.  And say a prayer that the Lord will bear much fruit for His Kingdom and for the construction of the monastery through this appearance!!

Hello everyone!  There's been a slight change regarding the air time for Lin Sue's Hero Central spot on the Nun Run.  It will air on MARCH 8th at 10pm on Channel 12 News.  Be sure to tune in!  Lin Sue's last feature with the Sisters last year was truly wonderful.

Nuns in the News - on TV and Radio!

OK - so the Nun Run is now only one week and one day away!  It's not too late to register!!!!  With South Carolina, Vermont, Delaware, and Rhode Island joining the fun, we now only have 4 states yet to be represented: UTAH, MONTANA, HAWAII, and ALASKA!!!  Spread the word to anyone you know in those states to sign up today :)

We have some big news.  The press is taking this story and running with it (no pun intended!)  Next week will find the Nun Run in the News.  Be sure to mark your calendars and, if you can't watch live, be sure to set your tivo for the following shows:

- Monday, March 7th: Fox 10's morning show 9:35 and 9:55 a.m. live remote segments with Corey;  The Bishop's Hours on Immaculate Heart Radio (1310 am) at 10 a.m. 

- Ash Wednesday, March 9th: Fox News NY Fox & Friends slated for 8:45 a.m. EST (depending on the news of the day, the nuns could appear anytime between 6 am EST and 9 a.m. EST - for those here in AZ, that translates to 4 am and 7 am)

 - Thursday, March 10th: The Bishop's Hour Encore Presentation at 9 p.m.; 12 News Hero Central at 10 p.m.  
all of this media coverage is due in large part to Kim and Nancy.  Thank you, ladies!  You are the best!!!!
