Operation Homefront & the Army 10 Miler

“I have committed to running the Army 10 Miler; and to raising $1,000 in the process.”

Happy Independence Day!

The official document informing England it was not the boss of us!

I love the 4th of July, the anniversary of us officially telling England, “You’re not the boss of me!”  If that doesn’t make you feel patriotic I don’t know what does!

So, in the spirit of patriotism, helping others, and–dropping 10 pounds–I committed this weekend to running the Army 10 Miler in October.  The longest race I’ve ever run is a 10k (6 miles) so this will be a new challenge.

I also committed to raising $1,000 for Operation Homefront in the process.  Operation Homefront provides financial and other assistance to families of deployed soldiers and wounded warriors.

Please consider making a $10 donation to this urgent and worthy cause.  You can click on the moneybag below and it will take you to the fundraising page.

The longest race I have run is a 10k; but, that was part of a triathlon, so a 10 miler should be achievable.

As I increase my mileage on training runs, I hope to also see the fundraising increase toward my goal of $1,000.  You can click on this link:  http://www.active.com/donate/teamoh2015atm/tonemanblog or on the moneybag above.

Thanks in advance for your generosity!
