Ultra Attempt

BENEFITING: American Red Cross

EVENT DATE: Dec 01, 2012

THE STORY:

In the wake of the utter devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy, and my own cognitive dissonance about participating in the marathon, I had eventually come to the decision to use the race as a fundraiser. I had no doubt that the right decision was made upon the news of its cancellation, and this conviction was further cemented upon volunteering on what would have been race day and seeing the extent of suffering of others, especially those in marginalized communities. However, I would not like to pass the opportunity to raise money for the many, many storm victims whose lives will never return to pre-storm normalcy. 

I will be attempting my first ultra on Dec. 1: The North Face Endurance Challenge in San Francisco. I have no idea if I am able to complete 50 miles, but I will be attempting, and, with this purpose, succeeding-- or passing out in the process. If you feel so inclined, I (and more importantly, those in need of aid) would really appreciate any donation, through the the American Red Cross.
