This year’s World Hunger Relief relay will be a 2 x 12 hour treadmill relayPosted: August 28, 2009 | Author: bqx40 | Filed under: charity | Tags: charity | Leave a comment »
…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…
