Week 18:

699 miles (oh so close) run
$2425.53 raised in pennies per mile to date

We have had so many wonderful comments about this project. So many supporters and pledges. We truly feel blessed. Bob has gone through one pair of sneakers so far, he recently had a donation just to help him pay for a new pair. When we first began this journey we were hoping to raise $1000.00. With your support as you can see the total is way beyond that and we are only 18 weeks in. Bob had originally hoped to run 1000 miles. Now that has changed and he is looking at 1800. Today he ran in Utica for a change. A pretty fall day for his run. In two weeks we are headed to Albany for the Mohawk Hudson Half Marathon.

Thank you for your support.

Chilly Morning Runs

It is starting to get cold.  The temperature was 44 degrees at morning running time today.  Bob had to wear a jacket twice this week.  I don't want to tell him but pretty soon he will have to put his shorts away and get out his insulated gear. We received a new pledge this week. It is wonderful to have support from not only family and local friends but from strangers and friends from all over the country.

Week 16 of 52
630 total miles run to date
$2188.88 earned in pennies per mile pledged.
$3.42 per mile.

Thank you for all of your support.

Week 15

Week 15
591.7 miles run
$2023.61 earned in pennies per mile pledged
Thank you so much for everyone who has pledged to date. If you have not pledged please consider doing so today.

This is my personal project to raise money for the wounded Warrior Project. I am logging miles that I run from Memorial Day 2013 to Memorial Day 2014. Anyone can pledge pennies per mile or a flat donation to the cause. I plan on running 1500 miles in the year. So a 2 cent pledge would be a $30.00 donation. Please consider supporting me today.

Thank you

Half Marathon

Bob ran in the Lake Placid Half Marathon today. He had a great time, 1:44:03 for 13.1 miles. What was even better were all the comments about his shirt and the many thanks form other runners and spectators. So very proud of him.

Sunday 9/1/13

Sunday 9/1/13 end of week 14
560 miles run, $1915 earned on pennies per mile pledges. This coming week we will surpass the $2000.00 mark!!

The low milage running this week was due to a trip to NYC to see Sarah. If we counted miles walked we would have already hit $2000.

Happy Labor Day!
