I have been looking for ways to challenge myself in running as of late. It started with my running a marathon, then it progressed to running a marathon in under 5 hours. Last year I became a Marathon Maniac by running 2 marathons in a 15 day period. This year I’m looking to break the 4 hour marathon, I am only 12 minutes from that goal now. My second goal for this year is to run 4 marathons in a 23 day period & obtain Iridium level in the Marathon Maniacs. But now is the time for me to set some goals for next year, and I think I’ve got a good one. And what better day to announce this than my birthday, I am running the Goofy.
Those of you that are runners already know what this means. Those of you who aren’t, here’s the low down. Most marathon’s, 26.2 miles, have a half marathon, 13.1 miles, division. The Disney Marathon is no different, except that the division are run on two separate days. On Saturday January 7th, the Disney Half Marathon is run and on Sunday January 8th, the Disney Full Marathon is run. The Goofy Challenge is running all 39.3 miles of both races in that two day period. This however, is not the real challenge for me.
The Goofy Challenge is the race where I’m going to use running to give some back for all that running has given me. I have signed up to run the Goofy Challenge as part of the Liver Life Challenge. This means to compete I need to raise $3650 for the American Liver Foundation. At this point it is no longer my challenge, but a challenge for all my friends, family, coworkers and acquaintances. I can’t do this without you. My ability to race is completely in your hands, and I trust you all to come through for me. The money I raise for the American Liver Foundation will be used to research cures for Liver Disease, Liver Cancer, Hepatitis and so many other liver related illnesses.
So I am asking you my friends, to help me make this a reality and support liver health by going to my Liver Challenge page a make a donation.
