The Delano Park 12 Hour Race in Decatur, Alabama is just a little over a month away and I figured I'd provide a quick update. While I initially mainly registered for this race out of curiosity, I now have multiple other reasons to participate and to try to do well, personally and mileage-wise. First, shortly after I registered for this race, I was "invited" to participate in a really cool ultra marathon, the Nord-Ostsee-Kanal (Kiel Canal) 108K Run. I figured a 12 hour race would be great preparation for this type of event. Also, I decided to associate myself with a worthy cause for the 12 hour race, Team ACS (American Cancer Society) in honor of my grandmother, a two-time cancer survivor herself. I hope to raise awareness as well as funds to further the research to find a cure for cancer. So far, a lot of friends and family have already stepped up and graciously donated money upfront. Some brave folks decided to take me up on my challenge to match every lap (1 mile) I finish during these 12 hours with a 1 dollar donation. It is my goal to run 50 miles for this worthy cause. Please feel free to participate and support this cause by visiting my personal Team ACS page.
