Okay - I realize you all get lots of opportunities to contribute to worthwhile causes all around the world. Some of you are actually those worthwhile causes.
The is something I have wanted to do since I started running and now with the OC Marathon on my birthday, I have a chance. Instead of a gift card to Chipotle or the Outback, and you all know how much of a sacrifice that is for me, consider making a donation to Team Duke for my race!
I appreciate everyone's support and hope that you follow my team and check in after the race to see how I did. I finished in 1:52 at the Surf City half in February, so I am hoping to be under 1:50 for the OC.
UPDATE - It appears some people aren't satisfied with just helping kids with cancer, but also want a challenge goal so here it is - If I finish in under 1:45 you get to double your contribution. If I don't, you get to ridicule me for being lazy and weak!!! Just email me if you want to participate and I will make sure you get a copy of the official results.
