That's my toughest stretch of races ever; two 5ks, two marathons and two 50ks in 36 days.
What can you do? You can donate to the cause by visiting my fundraising page! I'm still a long way from my goal, so every little bit helps, but I'm going to sweeten the pot for you. This journey will all culminate at the North Face Endurance Challenge event in Kansas City, MO. How would you like to run it?? I'm going to have a raffle to give you that chance!
For every $5 donated between the time this is posted and 8 am Central 10/20 you will get an entry into the raffle!!! The winner of the raffle will receive a code for a FREE entry into any distance (5k, 10k, Half Marathon, Marathon, 50k) of the Kansas City North Face Endurance Challenge!!
So, you get to help veterans and a shot at an entry to the race! Give $5 = 1 entry; give $50 = 10 entries. On Oct 20 I will take all of the entries and draw one winner and send them a code good for any of the race distances. All you need to do is make your donation, then send me an email at email@example.com with your name, the amount you donated and your email address.

The race itself was amazing! Even with the half marathon we ran by so many KC landmarks; the Nelson, the Plaza, Westport, Brookside, the WWII Memorial, Union Station, the Sprint Center, Kauffman Center, KC Art Institute, etc. Very cool course!! The aid stations were well staffed and stocked with water & NUUN. The volunteers were very encouraging and fun, there were tons of spectators out cheering and supporting and kids giving high-fives!! Oh, and I can say I have run a race with Michael Wardian!! He ran the half marathon as well!! I truly had a blast running it and can't wait to bump up from the half last year to the 50k this year!!
