Success!

You guys are awesome! My goal for fundraising was $4,500 and currently we're at $4,695!!




If you still want to have a chance to win $100, $50, or $25 prizes, you can still enter the contest by guessing my distance for this Saturday's six hour race! The charity sure isn't going to complain about the additional donations and it could be an awesome win-win situation if you end up getting one of the prizes!




I'll accept distance guesses up until Friday evening and then I'll probably tweet about the race on Saturday if you can't wait until Monday to find out how far I ended up going. The weather is looking fantastic for race day with a high of just 81 degrees, which is really rare for late July in Maryland. It should be a fun day to walk (or run if you're able bodied like that) and I'm looking forward to it!

Here's the donation page if you want to see how 147 donations added up to something amazing!

Again, a huge thank you to everyone who supported the Semper Fi Fund!




As a funny parting note, the shortest distance anyone thinks I'll go is 13.1 miles and the longest is 29.5 miles. That's quite the range and I'm impressed that no one thinks I'm just going to walk two laps (8.2 miles) and say "Fuck this" and go watch DVDs in my van until everyone else is done.

How far do you think you could walk in six hours? I've never walked for that long so I'm interested if anyone has done it!

  1. I walked 37kms in 8.5hrs on a blistering hot Australian day for a homeless charity. Oh the blisters (and chafe for the husband!) that's 22.9 miles for those in the US and Liberia ;)

  2. Probably like 4 miles because that's about all I got before I get bored of walking. That's awesome that you exceeded the goal already!! Well done!

  3. Congrats on being such a fundraising success!

    On a track I'll bet I could break 20 miles. Then again walking IS my new jam.
