On Friday April 11th, Andrew Powell and his brother-in-law were both struck by a vehicle while practicing for an Iron-man race. Unfortunately, his brother-in-law did not make it. Andrew is in critical condition with his loving wife, Sandra, by his side. We are praying and thanking God that he is with us. He sustained many injuries including crushed veterbrae and a shattered pelvis. Anybody who knows Andrew (or A.P as most people call him) knows that his strength is overwhelming and his love for running is what gives him the will and the strength to overcome anything. My goal here is to raise as much as possible as we know how overwhelming this situation is and it would be wonderful if the medical bills can be handled by his family, friends and loved ones. Life is so precious and every moment counts just as every little bit donated makes a huge difference. If you are unable to contribute, all I ask is that you continue to pray. God bless.

The generosity and sincerity of people have made this whole terrible ordeal so much easier. The support has really been unbelievable to a point where there are no words that can even begin to express the gratitude that we have. It's been amazing to see everyone come together for a fellow friend, trail/ultra runner, Ironman and a living-life-to-the-fullest activist.
WE LOVE AP!
A motivating run for AP and Frank

A.P has his spine surgery this morning. Sandra and John were able to see him this morning before they rolled him into the OR. A.P said he was ready for the surgery. Please keep prayers coming for this long 5-6 hour surgery. God bless.

A.P finally asked about his bike. He looked at John and said "Oh, I hadn't thought about it, but how's my bike?" For anyone that knows Andrew and his LOVE for his bike will understand that this statement showed us that he is regaining some of his thought process.

AP, I ran this morning at Kennesaw Mountain while thinking of you and sending you thoughts and prayers. My 16 year old knew I just had to go this morning and so he joined me. I've only gotten him to run with me a few times, but he knew this was important. I know all of us with RunATL Balance Running and my fellowing running peeps are thinking of you.

A.P and Sandra, These comments were made by people when they donated who wanted to remain anonymous therefore their comments never showed... Best to you and your family as you recover from this terrible accident. I hold you all close. Namaste. You're not even close to being done running. It's only a matter of time until you're back on those trails again Sandra, we are thinking about you but most of all, praying for you and Andrew. Remember when you pass through the deep waters, I will be with you, says The Lord. When you go through the rivers of difficulty you will not drown. Isaiah 43:2
