This year's World Hunger Relief relay will be a 2 x 12 hour treadmill relay

...instead of a death-defying run back-and-forth between our two campuses (9.2 miles).  Bummer.

In fairness, the only death-defying parts of the run were the crossings (at between 9am and 3pm) of Poplar Level Rd @ Jefferson, Fern Valley Rd @ Jefferson, Outer Loop in front of Jefferson Mall, Preston Hwy near Manslick, and crossing/running along the entrance and exit ramps to the Snyder @ Preston.  Ok, so those crossings could be pretty harrowing.

In its place, my team will be running (others may be walking) on this puppy (sans TV):

4 teams of runners or walkers will be spending 2 consecutive 12 hour days on the treadmill, relay-style.  Given my experience running 20 MILE LONG RUNS on the treadmill, I ought to be good for a 4-6 hour contribution of the two days, October 1 and 2.

More details to follow...
