BENEFITING: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
The initial e-mail from Patrick Buchanan that sums it all up:
Ladies, Gentlemen, and those desiring to be EPIC:
Here is your chance. You have been chosen for greatness.
As many of you may or may not know, 2012 was the YEAR OF EPIC ADVENTURE and 2013 Anno Domini is the YEAR OF EPIC FITNESS (#ifyadontknownowyaknowninja). In front of us we have the beautiful opportunity to combine both.
But how Pat HOW?!!?
By doing the (nearly) impossible, allowing you to craft one of the greatest stories you may ever have in your life.
My friends - 12 of us will be running a 2 day relay from Huntington Beach California to San Diego California. Yes that is nearly 200 miles. No, I haven't started drinking yet.
I'm as serious as the day my best friend told me he thought my sister was hot.
I want to run this race with some of my best friends, even those who may be attracted to my sister. That's how dedicated I am to making this happen. In all honesty, it's already happening. I signed up a team of 12, so there will be an EPICALLY AWESOME themed team running in April. I know not all of you on this list can or necessarily want to do this, but the kids chosen to be Planteers didn't necessarily want that awesome responsibility either. Especially the kid who's power was "heart." Sucker.
I'm not worried about any of you not being able to physically do this. You absolutely can. I wanted to get the chafe free balls rolling so you can start saving, start training, and sell your weekend 2 Coachella tickets because you'd rather be sweating with these friends anyway. As you can tell, there are more than 12 people on this email. I know people have other obligations, injuries, or wallets as bulimic and skinny as mine. No worries. However the time has come to craft the perfect team of dedicated misfits, so we can begin to write the most epic story about 12 people blindly following a bearded white guy in pursuit of a theoretical paradise.
Reply back if you are epic and definitely in, or know others who are looking to be involved (runners/drivers/volunteers). The team needs assembled first and foremost. Otherwise, let me know if you are doing something else epic, and cannot be a part of this - we will find a less epic substitute.
Details in brief:
Legs: Each runner will run 3 legs over the course of the 2 day race. Legs vary in distance and difficulty, in order to accommodate different levels of runners. The total distance some one will run is between 12-22 miles, which means you have to be in better shape than I currently am. Maybe I should back ou--JUST EFFING KIDDING I CAN'T WAIT TO BE FREAKING EPIC AND NEITHER CAN YOU!
Charity: The charity is the Leukemia and Lymphoma society.
I love you all,
