Against my better judgment, I have signed up to run the Tri-State Tough Mudder on October 20 (www.toughmudder.com). Lou Januzzi managed to coerce myself and 16 other individuals (Team name: Mod 10) to sign up for this torture. Lou can be very persuasive (it helps that he has a thick folder full of compromising pics and a lot of us did some things in the 90’s that should probably not see the light of day…). In the hopes of making this horrible experience a little more palatable I have decided to try and raise money for a good cause.
As many of you know, my mother suffers from Reflexive Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome, an affliction relating to the sympathetic nervous system. I am running in the hopes of raising awareness and hopefully making a sizable donation along the way. For those of you in a position to give, you can donate at my fundraising site, www.crowdrise.com/LearsToughMudder. Anything you can give will contribute to learning more about the causes of, and treatments for a condition that currently has no cure. And for any of you that have the time, I encourage you to visit www.rsdfoundation.org to learn more about RSDS/CRPS.
I thank you all for your support and hopefully I can make the finish line.
