6:25 p.m. Up one last hill – and a jubilant finish!
3:30 p.m. What’s a little rain to slow us down?
2:30 p.m. On a quick 3-mile jaunt. Coming back by the checkpoint before single digits left!
12:30 p.m. – At the end of the Bicentennial Mall across from Farmers Market. Hot, but keep on truckin’.
11:40 a.m. Back at the checkpoint to meet up with new runners and drop some off. 39.25 miles down. Home stretch coming up. Not too late to run with us. Check out “Run With Me” on this site.
10:20 a.m. Headed back out, running through Centennial Park and the Meharry and Fisk areas. Check out “Run With Me” if you want to join up.
9:30 a.m. Cruising through Belmont campus, making our way back to the Gulch. About 33 miles down so far. Wonder how many students are even up yet?
8:50 a.m. Bill is at Clifton and Belmont (near Woodmont) heading south.
One runner had never met Bill or heard of Salama…she just saw us out there and knew something big was going on!
He’s currently running through Music Row and Edgehill and should be back at the Bohan parking lot between 10 and 10:30. Check out the “Run With Me” section to see how you can catch up with him or get updates via phone.
5: 15 a.m. Bill checked into the Bohan parking lot around 5 a.m., close to 17 miles into the run.
Come out to the finish line event at The Salama Institute from 3:30-7 p.m. on Saturday, September 11. This free event includes music, games, inflatables, food and more!
A couple of days ago I turned 56. Today, to celebrate my birthday and as a challenge to myself, I will run 56 miles.
Yes, you read that right. 56 miles in one day. Two marathons in a row, plus a few extra miles to round up to my age. I call it my Big, Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG) for 2010.
This event is not only a challenge but a way to raise money and awareness for a worthy cause: The Salama Institute.
The will to win means nothing without the will to prepare.
On this site, you’ll discover more about why I’m running, what I’m doing to prepare for the big day, and what you can do to help me. You can even run part of it with me.
Take a look at me on Channel 4 with Rudy Kalis and Terry Bulger! Click here.
