This One Is Going To Hurt - 48 Hours In The Park

I have been thinking about this one for a couple of years and finally decided to go for it. This year our annual charity run for the benefit of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, will be a solo effort in New York City's Central Park. Beginning on Friday, September 20, 2013 I will run/walk for 48 hours straight in an attempt to cover 200 miles. That is 33 loops on Central Park's outer roadway. By way of comparison, my Catskill 155 effort was 155 miles and took me 45.5 hours and Badwater at 135 miles took 42+ hours (significantly more harsh conditions of course). This will no doubt be a challenge of epic proportions for me. I wrote about the park as my oasis a couple years ago and I am extremely excited about the struggles I will certainly go through here. It's a place of great presence in my heart and there is no question this adventure will strip me to the core. I can only hope my commitment and support of so many carry me through, bringing much needed attention to the MMRF and raising a boatload of money so we can find a cure for cancer together.

We will continue to provide updates over the next 7 months as we train and further develop our strategy. If you would like to make a donation to the MMRF please click here.
