A Relay sprint
8 p.m. ET, May 31 updateThanks to a couple of donations today, I am now $322.20 away from hitting my goal. New to the challenge: running a mile total backward. I might not do the full mile at one time, but I'll make sure 4 laps are done running backward.
10 p.m. ET, May 31 update $172.20 to go! The generosity of others is amazing. I'd love to wake up in the morning and see my progress bar completed. Let's go!
8 a.m., June 1 update Less than 12 hours and $100 to go ...
Original post: In less than 48 hours, I will be hitting the track for Relay for Life. As part of my fundraising efforts, I made a pledge a while back to run a mile for every $50 raised, up to 10 miles.
It's a similar goal I've had in years past. Last year I upped the ante a bit and committed to run 13.1 miles on the track if I hit my goal of $1,000.
This year I had a tougher time committing to a similar goal. I needed to wait to see how I felt after Cleveland before figuring out something special when I hit the $1,000 mark.
Well, here it is ... as I write this, I am $337 away from my goal; my team -- Wimmer Chiropractic's "Cracking the Cure" -- is about $600 from it's overall goal.
So what do you say? Want me to run another half marathon in circles, all for a good cause? I'd love to do it again, but I need your help hitting my goal by Friday night.
As donations come in over the next couple of days, I will update as much as I can above. Let's make this happen!
