What Would You Run 1000 Miles For
I received an e-mail asking that question. The story of the e-mail talks about Pat Conzemius, from Wildlife Forever, who is running 1000 miles to help with Wildlife Conservation. He has a goal set, and a good cause to run for. I have a cousin who is a huge part of Team In Training, who run to raise money to fight Leukemia & Lymphoma. He runs like there is no tomorrow. And for a great cause. What I like about a lot of the races I have run in, they all donate a large portion of their proceeds to different foundations to either help find the cure for a disease, or support unfortunate families. If you are someone who can't seem to find a good reason to get motivated to run, look at what these folks have done with their spare time. Not only are they getting in shape but, they are doing it for good causes. Since I started recording my mileage, back in Jan of 2007, I am about to cross the 3000 mile mark. So, get motivated, and get out there and get in shape by running for a cause. Help others out.
