Let's Run for the Fallen
If any of you listened to Phedip 142, you will know about this run called Run for the Fallen. A team of runners are running 1 mile for every soldier lost during Operation Iraqi Freedom (I believe they may be using the count of Americans lost).
They started their run yesterday (Flag Day here in the US) and will end the run in Arlington Cemetery after running over 4000 miles. They invite everyone to run a mile on August 24th to support the effort.
Just for fun, I started a Challenge on RunnersPlus to see if we can get enough runners to virtually run the 4000+ miles between now and August 24th. If you want to participate, sign up!!! And as I recently discovered, you don't need a Nike+ system to participate. Create an account and just manually log your miles.
