Run 4 Poverty – Grand Canyon Solo Rim-Rim-Rim Run

I’m pleased to announce my first Run4Poverty event to benefit those in need.  After years of post-collegiate training and continual 5k-10k-marathon type road and track racing, I’m ready to change gears for a bit.  I’m restless to explore and do some running I’ve never done before.  I very well might come back to traditional road racing but (as mentioned in this Des Moines Register article) all of 2013 will be somewhat of an exploration for me as I challenge myself in ways I haven’t before with distance running – some ultra running, trail running, who knows?  But to kick off the year, I’ve planned a solo rim-rim-rim run across the Grand Canyon and back in April.  This 50+ mile trek will serve a few purposes for myself and others.  I’m excited to raise funds for Sports Gift Inc. – a charity that provides sporting equipment to impoverished and disadvantaged children.  I’m also using it as a getaway trip for myself – I’ll be camping by myself the 3-4 days prior to running in an effort to escape, unplug, and be still.  Read all about what I’ve got planned – the run, the charity, my journey, and ways to support (not all financially) by simply going to (and sharing) ……

Is it easier to… A) Give up $1.67 per day of frivolous spending for one month

or …  B) Run across the Grand Canyon and back by yourself?
