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.
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.
