Sponsor me! 100 miles in 10 Days for Charity

I'm running 100 miles in 10 days to support a good cause -- I'm looking for sponsors in the For Lucas 10 x 10 challenge. To sponsor my run, go to forlucas.com. You can either donate in my name (Allen Day) or mention me in the comments. If you want to donate now, great--that'll put the pressure on. If you want to donate by the mile after I finish, even better, but please let me know you're doing it. It'll serve as encouragement to finish... and maybe run a couple extra miles.

For more info on the challenge and charity, check out the for lucas 10 x 10 running dad challenge.

Thanks, and please spread the word if you're so inclined!

10 miles x 10 days in a row?
That sounds crazy.  I'm going to donate but i'd still feel better if you didn't try to complete it if it risks injury.

Thanks mouser! I am pretty sure I'm up to the challenge, keeping the pace nice and easy. 10 miles down, so far so good!

I am now mentally psyching myself up for the final 10 miles. I'm sore, tired and ready for a break but [hopefully] no worse for wear. Thank you Donation Coder for the donation/sponsorship!

Choose your own encouragement:

If you haven't finished your last ten miles

Go Allen! You can do it, rah rah!



If you've already finished

You did it! Hooray! You're so awesome! Great job sticking it through to the end!

Thanks guys! Afterwards, I swore I'd never do it again. And wasn't sure I ever wanted to run again.

A few days later I was running again. (Duh)

And now I'm doing it again. Sigh. :)

10 miles x 10 days in a row?
That sounds crazy.  I'm going to donate but i'd still feel better if you didn't try to complete it if it risks injury.

I've hiked 15 miles in a single day while carrying 80+lb of gear. Didn't even take me all day to do, I had it covered in perhaps 5 hours.

If you've practiced for this and have the right equipment along with friends along the way in case anything goes wrong, its perfectly safe and can be a lie-changing experience to do.

He's got plenty of time- at a typical human running speed in the 8-12 MPH range it probably won't be much more than 2 hours a day of travelling sustained for the 10 days.

It adds up to well more than my usual weekly mileage, but I'm good for it. 10 miles is really no problem (except finding the time!) but after several consecutive days without rest it takes its toll.

At least I'll be traveling with well under 80lbs of gear!
