So, how far would you go to put an end to cancer?
This coming weekend, ( Saturday April 4th) I will run 50 miles to put an end to this disease. I will do the running part and I ask of you only to donate to my fundraising page. The goal this year is to raise $55,000 dollars for the cause and complete my 55th marathon.
This Saturday will begin with the alarm ringing at 12:30am. A fast shower, put on some running clothes and a 2 hour drive to Auburn, California. I will board a bus with other runners at 4:05am and then drive to the town of Folsom. When I arrive Folsom, I will receive my race number and soon line up at the start line. Porta potty first!!!
At 6am, the gun sounds the beginning of the: "American River 50 Miler". AR50
The run begins in Folsom and ends with the infamous climb up the "Dam Wall" at mile 46. All runners will take a deep breath and ascent the climb and we will be greeted at the summit by the " Boys of last Gasp". With only 2.5 miles to go, motivational mile mark signs, cow bells and cheerleaders will boost our spirits as we tackle the last climb.Mile 49 is known as the "Party Mile" as we finally arrive the town of Auburn.
I hope to finish somewhere around 6 pm that night, and finally sit down.
I will turn on my smart phone at that time and see how much money we raised for the cause.
This cause is very near and dear to my heart.
It is my passion to end this disease.
We have all lost so many family members and friends to cancer, and I hope you will join me in my fight to the finish !
God bless all of you!
