There’s an article out there today about a man who is attempting to be the oldest marathon finisher ever at the age of 101. You can read about him here.
So I was thinking that maybe I needed a cause… a story… a reason.
Girl, thirty-something, attempts to be the slowest half-marathon finisher ever. Kelli W credits her slowness to an obsession for the seasonal Robin’s Eggs candy and a penchant for mochas. She says she’s running the half-marathon to prove that she’s not too busy in her life and that one can always find time to do what one wants to do. In order to prove that point Kelli tells us “the slower I go, the longer it takes – just proving my point further. You can enjoy Robin’s Eggs and be a slow runner.” And she figures the longer she takes doing her miles, the longer other people have to watch her children for her. She is promising that whatever monies she raises will be donated to the cause of Her Children, ages 4, 5 and 8, who need new sandals for the coming summer.
