Dear Friends & Family,
Donna and I are crazy. And now that we are both in our 50's, we would like to really prove it!!!!! We have been avid runners for many years. Spending precious time and money kicking asphalt and running many races, raising money for charitable organizations as well as for fun. From 5k's to 1/2 marathon's to full marathon's in all kinds of weather. In 2014, I attempted an ultra and was only able to run 35 1/2 miles of the 50 mile course. In 2015, Donna ran 3 marathons and has completed races in 10 of the 50 states.
Collectively, we've had the pleasure of running on many beautiful courses and trails and experienced nature at it's finest.
Now as running partners, we would like to conquer Rock the Ridge 50 together. This ultimate natural preserve, where beauty takes on a whole new level, will be the perfect setting for our ultimate running experience.
Conceived in the spirit of President John F. Kennedy's call to American's to get fit, Rock the Ridge renews a challenge from the early 1960's and places it in the heart of the magnificant Shawangunk Ridge, land which The Nature Conservancy has described as one of Earth's last great places. Set in 8,000 acre Mohonk Preserve the course winds along beautiful carriage trails, through the forest and across the magnificant ridge lines of the preserve lands.
Our goal is to raise $500 collectively to conserve the Mohonk Preserve right here in New York.
Any amount, big or small, makes a difference!!!
Thank you in advance for your support.
