Kelly and I are celebrating our 15th anniversary in Boston, MA September 17-22 and she signed us both up for the Salem Half Marathon. I have not run a half marathon, nor have I trained for a half marathon. But I'm willing to do my best, and I need you to help motivate me to a better time.
I am raising funds for the Shaping the Future campaign for the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine. We have already raised $750,000 but our goal is $1.5 million to help increase workforce, develop education and advocate for good policy. An investment in developing Hospice and Palliative Medicine helps people of all ages and anyone affected by a serious illness either directly or indirectly. It affects us all.
So since I have not trained for this I need you to give me a reason to run faster.
My best pace for a 5k has been around 13 minute/mi.
If I can finish the half marathon under 3 hours (14 min/mi), then I will match all donations $0.50 to your dollar.
If I finish the half marathon over 3 hours, then I will match all donations 1:1.
