Short-Term Running Goals:

Get back under 3 for my next marathon, September 2018; Berlin!

A friend of mine recently brought to my attention "Team for Kids".
This group is part of the New York Road Runners (NYRR) club.

He has run for them in the past. People who run for Team for Kids commit to raising money that is then used to fund school-based and free youth events around the United States to help the youth of America adopt healthy lifestyles through running and fitness.

- Since 2002, Team for Kids has raised more than $57,000,000.

- This money has been used to support programs reaching more than 267,000 children nationwide.

- This funding, in addition to the items listed above, helps pay for training of teachers and coaches, program and practice supplies, and student incentives.

- For most of these kids, running with a NYRR program is their only opportunity to get exercise or play sports.

This year I will be running for this effort as a charity participant in the Berlin Marathon. My fundraising goal is $2,000.

Please help me make this goal by contributing to the following: https://runwithtfk.org/Donate/Member/56641

 

Long-Term Running Goals:

Enjoy being a Master's Runner.

Grew up outside Chicago and joined the blog while I lived in Salt Lake City. Now living outside Birmingham. I am married with two daughters. Wife thinks I'm crazy for doing marathons. And yes I am crazy I'm a scientist for a living...

Which one is the "before" picture? Nice work!

looks like fun - nice beard you got going there

From Adam RW on Sun, Mar 18, 2018 at 20:43:38 from 107.130.1.59

Thanks to both of you. Definitely an event that leads to team building and finding your limits.

Looks like a fun group of guys to compete with. Nice job!

Jeff, Most are not runners but have expressed interest in a Ragnar, but we would need others you potentially game?

From jtshad on Tue, Mar 20, 2018 at 08:10:29 from 141.221.191.225

Maybe, depends on where and when. This summer is pretty slammed for my family.

From Adam RW on Tue, Mar 20, 2018 at 08:20:14 from 138.26.42.154

Likely not until next year. They've already been signing up for at least one maybe two other TMs for this year...

Did you guys change shirts between photos, or did your neon yellow really turn that shade of green?

From Adam RW on Tue, Mar 20, 2018 at 20:06:57 from 107.130.1.59

Jon, Isn't that insane! Definitely amazing what tricks light can play. Plus I didn't want to get pinched for not wearing green on St. Patrick's Day :)
