This is weekend number two of 8 straight races, including 5 marathons, 2 halfs and a yet to be announced race distance and place (I like to be sneaky sometimes). My travels take me to Boulder, Colorado will I will compete in the beautiful yet challenging Boulder Marathon (ne' Boulder Backroads Marathon).
In addition, I will be speaking at the expo starting at 1 pm and 3pm on Saturday. To all my friends in the greater Denver area, I hope you are both able to make it out to the race and, if you come, PLEASE bring your worn running shoes to donate to One World Running. This great organization a non-profit organization based in Boulder, Colorado which collects and donates thousands of new and 'nearly new' shoes to needy individuals across the U.S. and the world In just a few short weeks, with the help of the Salt Lake City Track Club, I have personally gathered around 50 pairs of well-loved shoes.
While this is just a start, I hope to continue to work with One World Running in the future to help provide shoes to this wonderful cause.
Hope to see you in Boulder!
