Oregon Coast 350

For quite some time, I have been deep in the planning of the next test of my long-distance mettle. With the official go-ahead being received today, I am excited to announce that two months from today I will be running the entire length of the Oregon coast (mostly along U.S. Route 101), all 350 miles of it, in one week's time.


Averaging 50 miles a day, I will break during the middle of the afternoon to meet with various schools and other facilities to speak with children about the importance of not only exercising daily but fueling oneself properly. I will be working in conjunction with the Oregon, Washington and California Beef Councils to show children what can be accomplished when you not only ignore the impossible but do so with a healthful balanced diet.

There are so many details to be planned, routes to be mapped and schools to contact but I am beyond ecstatic to take on this endeavor through one of the most gorgeous areas of the United States. Please stay tuned while the entire adventure continues to develop.  There will be so much to share and we want all of you to be taking this trek with me!

'Holy cow!' is also appropriate in this case! Awesome that the Beef Council is supporting you on this challenge/adventure!

Love the raised bar! Wish we could ride shotgun with you like we did with the American Odyssey Relay. Go get 'em Dane.

Thanks for all you do to spread the word about the importance of exercise, and diet, to children (and adults). I hope to join you for at least a portion of the Oregon Coast 350. I may have to ride my bike to keep up with you!

When you take part in events like this I am just blown away at the endurance you have. I can't wait to hear updates and read your race recap on this event. Would love to see some pics along the coast on your route. :)
