On July 27, 2013, I will be running my first Ultra Marathon in Astoria Park in Queens.
The basic premise of what I will be doing is this: For 6 hours (from 5:00 PM util 11:00 PM) I will be running 1.27 mile laps around Astoria Park like a sweaty hamster in a large park-like wheel. At the completion of 6 hours, I will be told how many miles I completed, I will be given pizza, gatorade, and am likely to be told that I am a pretty bad-ass dude...
What do I want from you?
Funny you should ask, I am asking that my friends, family, coworkers, teammates, and even my mortal enemies support me in my run financially by donating to a great charity, Kick4Life. I know that I have friends on all levels of the financial spectrum, so I thought up maybe 3 levels of donorship. If you really like me, and/or, you're really wealthy, you could donate one dollar per kilometer, (I am expecting to run about 30 miles, which is roughly 48 km) another option would be a dollar a mile, and for those of us who are eating ramen and drinking PBR (not unlike myself) I thought maybe $1 an hour would be a good level of donation. Of course, any donation of any amount will go to a great cause and will be most appreciated.
