NEW BLOG! Virtual Run Across America

Go check it out! It's fresh, it's lean, but lots of great things will be added as we go along.


Anyone and everyone can participate. You can run one state, ten states or all the states. No matter what distance you choose, I would like to post your picture in a roster on the sidebar with your picture and a link to your blog. What does this mean? Yes, I need a picture of you (recent) with your blog link and a short ditty of why you are participating.

The kickoff date is still out there, but I'm thinking January 1, 2009. This will give everyone time to take a holiday break [from running? are you kidding?!? haha] and time for the route to be plotted across the states.

Let's get ready to RUN!!!!

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way
to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work.
And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.
If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking, and don’t settle.
As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.

This sounds like a blast! What do I need to do????
Does it matter how far we run??? I'm only an amateur at this yet!

Diana - send me a pic, link to your blog and a little note/pp about why you are participating. You can run all or some. Your call. Have a good one. :D

This sounds like another great adventure for 2009! I'm always up for something new and exciting to keep the running from getting dull.

We actually just did this at my gym. We ran/biked/swam from Flint MIchigan to Miami. I finished on the last day. Sorry, no photos. Witches don't show in photographs. I have also done the Indy 500 by foot power and several others. My running blog is private so again, no link but I am sending your links on to several others.
