Good Morning, I had the pri…
Good Morning,

I had the privilege of running the 91st Comrades Ultra Marathon this past weekend in South Africa. The Comrades spirit is one of camaraderie and support. As I ran this race with my friend, it was on full display through the entire 56 miles, 4,000 feet of elevation climb and 6,000 feet of decent. Hitting a rough patch in miles 32 – 40, my friend helped me through. I returned the favor in the end to push our pace, clocking in at 10 hours and 26 minutes – beating our goal of 10 ½ hours, and finishing before the 12 hour cut-off.

The bigger impact, however, was a result of your generosity and support. We raised over $16,000 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. I am so incredibly thankful to each of you.

The slogan associated with the Comrades is “Ikozuthoba”, meaning “it will humble you”. The run was a humbling experience - in terms of both the difficulty of the run, as well as the friendship and support on display from all of you in raising the money we did for the National MS Society.

I thank each of you for being a part of this experience. It meant so much more as a result of your support.

Lastly, I wanted to share a quote that was on display throughout the race, from the former President of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, “It always seems impossible until it is done”.

Together, we did it.

Thank you again,

Jason
