First 100 miler

First 100 miler

Over time, I had quietly come to realize that I wanted to try to run 100 miles.

I had been reading several books and decided that I would start training to run long.

A friend recommended supporting a charity since the event could draw some attention and that energy perhaps could help a charity.

Ultramarathon-Man-signedI chose Karno Kids and contact Dean Karnazes about it.

I surprisingly received a very heartfelt and encouraging reply from Dean directly and then received 10 autographed 50/50 books to help recruit crew and promote the event.

Also, I received a special signed copy of the Ultramarathon Man which is still one my favorite books.
