85 miles in 2014 just to feel like I could sign up. 817 miles run in 2015 so far.
375734 calories logged. By November, 11 months without ice cream in my regular diet. Thrown up in my mouth twice. One really nasty case of poison ivy too.
5 pair of running shoes, 1 wet suit, and at least 50 blisters.
2 plane tickets and 1,600 miles to Lake Las Vegas. 0 packs of airline pretzels allowed!
$4000 raised for the MS Society and Wounded Warrior Project in the past 4 years.
One goal: raise money for Wounded Warrior Project.
All of this is part of my journey to World's Toughest Mudder. Muckfest was my baptism into mudders, and I believe in the work that both the MS Society and Wounded Warrior Project do. I believe in my running and non-running teammates. If one person is helped, if a single person is inspired to get up and get active, then it has been worth every single of my 34 bruises so far this year.
Your generosity and support has made my fundraising goals for my runs possible each year and I thank each and EVERY one of you for this! I hope in 2015 I'm a Mudder You'd Like to Fund.
