Dear Friend, Well, at long …
Dear Friend,

Well, at long last I was able to able to make good on your generous donation to The Soldiers Project.

For 10 tough but gorgeous hours last Saturday, I joined several hundred other runners to cover the 50 Miles and 9000 feet of climb that make up the Mountain Masochist Trail Run in Virginia.

One of the course’s highlights--both in terms of suffering and beauty--occurs around 33 miles. By this stage, you’ve completed the steepest and longest climb of the course, and have entered into what they call the “Loop,” a semi-alpine garden of rocks and rhododendrons that teases runners with one breathtaking mountain view after another. Wish you could have been there!

Thank you again for making my effort last Saturday a meaningful one. The Soldier’s Project is a much-needed resource for members of the military and their families. I’m glad that together we were able to help in a small way (a little under $1000, all told).

10/3/13 UPDATE- The fundraiser is still on, but with a new event!

Dear Friend,

Last Tuesday, 2 days ago, we learned that the Grindstone 100 was suspended. Although the George Washington National Forest is open (a Forest is not a Park, you see), as a specially permitted event, the race needs to be supervised by USPS personnel--who, like most of the other 800000 furloughed federal workers, are not allowed to so much as to answer a work-related email while the government is shuttered.

As of today, the race is postponed to next week (pending the re-opening of government).

However, I have decided to withdraw my entry and am refocusing my training on the Mountain Masochist Trail Run 50 Miler (MMTR 50), which takes place on November 2. (http://www.eco-xsports.com/events/mmtr/)

For those of you who have donated to this fundraiser for Soldier's Project, I thank you again, and hope you are ok with me switching my fundraising event from Grindstone to MMTR. While it's "only" 50 miles, the trail is no less rocky and steep, with 9200 feet of elevation gain, the worst of it coming at you in the latter in the half of the race.
