I am going to preface this post by saying how I am continuously amazed by the REV3 organization. I am grateful to have gotten in with Team Trakkers in 2011, which has now turned into Team REV3. One reason I keep interested in the sport is because I have passion behind what I do, and being able to surround myself with people with a similar passion is contagious. It was recently announced that REV3 will be running across America!
Starting Monday, March 26, some of the REV3 staff as well as some of the Age Group Team members will start their journey to run across North America from Oceanside, California to Washington, D.C., over 3000 miles, in only 21 days.
The run is to raise awareness and $100,000 for The Ulman Cancer Fund. Take a look at the page, read some of the stories, and be inspired! I know everyone out there has their own situation and may only be able to donate a few dollars and a few others who could afford to add a few zeros. Do not think for one minute that your contribution is too small. Just as 3000 miles in 21 days is a large task, the only way to do it is in smaller segments.
If you have been around long enough, or poked at my history, you will see how I got started in endurance sports... by setting a goal, something that seemed so far that it was almost out of reach. This is a heck of a feat, and at first mention, I wanted to be a part! Unfortunately I will not be able to join the team doing the actual run, but many of the AG team have vowed to run "along side" the team. We will be logging our daily miles and encourage others to do the same.
I challenge anyone reading this to make a pledge to run with the team during these 21 days. Do you have a resolution to run your first 5k, first triathlon or marathon, or a seasoned veteran? Challenge yourself during this period to run each day, even if it is only for a mile, you will feel much more tied to the cause.
I have pledged to donate $10 for every missed normal workout starting today until they finish.
I also pledge to run at least 1 mile each day that they are running with a $10 dollar donation for any day missed.
