I'm on the run. Literally.
My wife Jenny has taken a new position with Team Challenge. Team Challenge is a fund raising arm of the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation. The goal is to provide participants with a half marathon training program and the opportunity to run a half marathon, all while raising money for the charity. To help her get started on the right foot (see what I did there?), I've agreed to join the program and run the Vegas Rock-N-Roll Marathon in December. Yes, really.
Now if you know me, you know that my diet typically consists of fried foods and candy. I've been known to enjoy a cookie and ask, "What's for dessert?" Needless to say, I need a life change when it comes to my weight and eating habits. So to raise money for a great cause that affects a lot of people in this country, to get myself in better health/shape, to a makeover on my diet, and to help the Mrs...I'm on the run.
I need your help. I need donations to help me reach my goal. Any amount you can send would be fantastic. You will be helping find a cure for these horrible diseases, and showing faith in me to complete a goal I've had for a long time and have never been further from reaching than I am right now.

That's right, you can run the race with me. You can sign up wherever you live and participate, and if you're in Cincinnati, you'll be training with me too. I promise to make it funny as long as I can breathe. And believe me, if I can start from scratch, anyone can. (True Confession: As I typed "from scratch" I immediately thought of biscuits. See why I need to do this?)
So I hope you'll help, I need it. I need encouragement, support, and money. Please send all three, especially the latter. Thanks in advance everyone!
