Call for runners this weekend

After months and months of planning, I'm finally doing the 48 Miles in 48 Hours run this weekend. I'm doing it to benefit the American Cancer Society.

I have people joining me live for 5 of the 6 segments (every one but the first segment), so I'll have company for most of the two days. I'm keeping track of their mileage and will add it to my total miles at the end of the weekend.

That said, I'm now looking for virtual runners to join me each day. I'd like as many people as possible to join me to make the total miles run as high as possible.

If you're planning to go for a run Saturday, Sunday or both in support of my race, please let me know and leave a comment on this page to tell me how far you've run (or are planning to run).

Thanks for your support!

Put me down for a virtual run with you on Sunday. I'm not doing the VT marathon after all but will be running nonetheless. I have a tough bike ride on Saturday so probably only 6-8 miles. Will do my best to make it 8 for you!

I'm running a 10K race on Saturday and I'd be happy to do it in your honour! If I can find some time on Sunday, I'll bang out a few extra KM's as well.

Can't believe your big event is here already! Best of luck with your last minute preparations/taper.

I will be in Philadelphia. I am sure over the course of the weekend I'll do my Rocky run. Can I report what I did after the fact?

Put me down for 7-8 miles on Saturday. Also running 15 or so on Sunday :-)

Rest up and have a great weekend!

Woah! Found your blog through marlene's! I'm doing a half on Sunday and it really has no purpose, so I'll do it for you!:) T

I'll be running between 13 and 14 miles on Saturday, and riding for 1 to 1-1/2 hours on Sunday. Count me in for a little virtual help!
