THE STORY:

Dear Friends,

I have begun training for Ironman Arizona, which is November 16. Seems like a long time until then, but I'll need it to get in shape for a 2.5 mile swim/112 mile bike/26.2 mile run, all in the same day (yes, for real). I did an Ironman (Florida) a few years ago and caught the bug again. This time, I want to use my training for and racing IMAZ as a platform to raise money for an organization that is doing a tremendous amount of good but doesn't get the national PR (and money) that a lot of other charitable organizations do.

Bike Walk Missississippi is the voice for cyclists and pedestrians throughout Mississippi. In a state that's known more for its problems (poverty, obesity, lack of resources), BWM has tackled some of those head-on and has made big strides for cycling, walking and running advocacy in communities around the state.

While I train and complete Ironman Arizona, I will be working to raise funds for BWM so they can continue their good work. The staff relies on state and federal grants, which are harder than ever to come by these days, and the donations of individuals like me and you. My goal is to raise (at least) $1,406 before IMAZ in November (that's 10 x 140.6 - the total Ironman distance.)

Throughout the next four months, as I train, I will be highlighting some of BWM's past successes and current projects, as well as random news from my training and fundraising challenges for you on my blog, miles4mississippi.wordpress.com.
