Hello everyone!! I have an update on my run for this summer! I am super excited to get started! :) They made it so, although it won’t be the same experience, it will still be one to remember! We will still start the same day (June 21st) at 12pm and end on August 8th! I have started looking for some new trails near home and some a little further to see some new sites! Hence the title - I want to go all over the county (and beyond!) If you have any suggestions please let me know!!
We will also still be “with” our team through group chats and weekly virtual team activities! We will still be running the same mileage as if we were running across the country together too! I will be able to update you on what state we would have been in during that time!
My mileage will be anywhere from 4 to 16 miles this summer with a marathon on the last day and a few rest days! I hope to vlog some of my experience and update you every day through vlogs! (Yes, I meant Vlog… that is a video blog for those who don’t know! It will be a little more exciting than just reading some words on a screen! 😊) They will be posted on here and on Facebook as well!! I hope you’ll be able to see them and support!
Throughout the run, we will also still have mission speakers and dedications. With that being said, if you haven’t given me someone to dedicate a run to, please do!! I would love to hear your story and dedicate a day by writing their/your name on my leg. No need to feel pressured to donate to share, just send me a message! Next summer, if I am able to actually run across the country I will carry that dedication over to the following year and give them two years of dedication!
I am SO excited for June 21st and I hope you are too!! Please let me know if you have any questions and send me any dedications! As the time gets closer, I will post more information and keep you updated!
Thank you everyone for being so supportive and for all the wonderful messages I received when we got the news that the run is virtual!
