Mercedes Half Marathon

Mercedes Half-Marathon, Make-A-Wish Dream Team

I have officially joined the Make-A-Wish Dream Team, and we will start training as a group in mid October, but my training begins today. I am going to walk every day!

Here are my two primary goals:
  1. Raise money for Make-A-Wish. My personal goal is $1310 ($100 per mile)
  2. Finish the 13.1 mile walk in 4 hours or less on Feb. 14, 2010 (Hey, that's Valentines Day)
This is the perfect opportunity to raise money for a good cause, occupy my spare time, and aid me in losing the 300 lbs for Talladega.

To make a donation, please go here:

So, I've got a lot of work to do. I don't have time to sit here and post, nor do I have time to mope and feel sorry for myself, I 've gotta walk.

  5. That's right, no time for moping, just walking! Keep it up buddy!

  6. Wow, what a great idea! So you can try walking just a little more every day and mayb take a walk in the morning and evening to break up the day. Best of luck. Tom and I will look forward to donating to the Make A Wish in your name. --Robin
