With all these numbers, by the end of the year, if I participate (God willing) in all my proposed events, I will have gone roughly 80.1 miles or 50 kilometers for charity! I won't attempt to calculate the money spent on registration fees for these events, but I can already see next year's challenge for myself will be to go farther then 80 miles and aim for 100! I created links to all the events above, so hopefully if you're in the Chicago area you'll join me! All this talk about distance made me think of the places I will go, so I leave you with this:
"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go. You won’t lag behind, because you’ll have the speed. You’ll pass the whole gang and you’ll soon take the lead. Wherever you fly, you’ll be the best of the best. Wherever you go, you will top all the rest..."
