I have trained the last 8 months to run an incredible race. Run 100 miles in less than 36 hours with 8000 meters of climbing in the beautiful Pacific NorthWest.
Unfortunately we have treated Mother Nature like crap and she is fighting back. Weather related circumstances have cancelled at least 3 races I have been involved with in the last year. This was MY first race cancelled by weather.
But I am not going to sit back and feel sorry for myself this weekend. I booked the time off. I bought all the supplies I needed. I rallied myself for 100 miles. So I am going to go get it. I am running 100 miles this Friday/Saturday to put all the hard work to good use. I am going to raise as much money as I can for a good cause. We are putting half of that raised toward the Rare Disease Foundation (https://rarediseasefoundation.org/), and the other half to an environmental advocacy group of our choosing. I won't sit back and watch another race get cancelled and do nothing. It's time we all take some responsibility.
The BM 100Miler will be run on Burnaby Mountain. There is a 8.5KM loop that I will run 19 times. Giving me 100 Miles and 8000 meters of climbing, (equal to the race I am missing out on this weekend). I have 36 hours to complete this task. Come cheer me on. Or donate here. Anything helps J
I’ll be starting at 5am tomorrow morning. Watch Facebook and Instagram for updates.
