24 hours of running

On October 12, 2013 I will run 24 hours straight for as many miles as I can. I’m doing this to raise money and awareness for LINC Houston, the organization that I lead. My goal is to run at least 100 miles and raise at least $100,000 through individual donations and church/corporate sponsorships.

What’s going through my mind right now as I begin to plan for a 24 hour run?

  • Excitement
  • A little fear
  • Aprehension
  • Tiredness
  • At what point will my body breakdown?
  • Will I have the will to continue when it gets tough?
  • How hot will it be that day?

All these things and more are running through my brain. I’ve never ran anything longer than a marathon, but I believe I have the ability to do it. More importantly, I believe so strongly in what LINC does in our communities that I am willing to do whatever it takes to advance that mission.

Should be an interesting journey.
