I ran my first marathon in 2001,
and now, 10 years later I've run a total of 22 marathons. Running
marathons is a good challenge, but I want more.
I have set a new challenge for
myself as I will turn 50 years old in 2019. The challenge is to run 50
marathons by the time I turn 50 years old (50 by 50). In this new year, 2012, I
am currently 42 years old, which means I have 8 years to run 28 marathons. This
means I will need to pick up the pace.
As I’m challenging myself, I’m
also challenging you, my friends, family and acquaintances. I need you to pick
up the pace with me and support me. Your challenge is to make a charitable
donation to the Foundation Fighting Blindness (FFB).
I choose the FFB, because it’s an
organization close to my heart. I have run and raise money for them in the past
and I think it’s a great organization to keep helping. With your generous
contributions one day they will find cures for many eye diseases, which will be
beneficial to us and many generations to come.
