1 Check Out "Fiddy2.org" & The Blog, "Dane Runs A Lot"
I'd like to give a shout out to my blogger-runner pal, Dane, who is one of the most amazing runners, ever. Back in 2006, he accomplished a feat some would say defies the boundaries of human accomplishment: He ran a marathon every weekend, & became the first person to run 52 marathons in 52 weeks. Yes, you heard me correctly.
AND, he did it all for charity, in support of L'Arche Mobile. (L'Arche is an international federation of communities in which people with a mental handicap and those who help them can live, work, and share their lives together.)
Might I add that he did all of this WITHOUT a corporate sponsor, & that all of the expenses for doing all of this came from his own pocket. Dane's an incredibly generous person, wouldn't you say?!
While he accomplished this running goal, he's still trying to meet his goal of raising $52,000 for charity. So, please help him out!
You can visit his charity fundraising site at Fiddy2.org.
And while you're at it, please visit his blog, Dane Runs A Lot.
Dane is simply amazing!
Oh, & I almost forgot to mention that I've nominated his blog for 3 awards: Best Charity Blog, Best Celebrity Blog, & Best Sports Blog.
Dane, I encourage you to "claim" the Blogger's Choice listing for your blog & to post the above badges on your own blog (i.e., copy the HTML code found at this link -- be sure to grab the code for all 3 awards) & on your Blogcatalog.com page to let others know about your awards. Congratulations on all your awards!
