I’ve gotten mixed reactions from people when I tell them I am doing this. Folks I expect will be jazzed by it are kind of flat, and folks I have expected to be flat about it are jazzed. Interesting mix.
So Far my boss (whose name is Sandy!) gave me clearance for the time off. I spoke with a neighbor, friend and local politician Steve Alexander (the world needs more guys like this, a true patriot). Steve can get me in touch with media outlets. I’ve time off work. I can run long distances. What can go wrong?
This has been an interesting decision. Its been really hard to get started mainly because I don’t know where to begin!
I know where the end point is – somewhere in Cap May with tired legs and sore feet. Thats easy. I know where to start the run from The highest point in New Jersey. The hard part is figuring out what I need to do to get to the starting point..
I’ve indentified three things I need to do to be successful:
1. Connect with media outlets
2. Arrange logistical support
3. Connect the effort with the charities / relief organizations who can provide benefit to New Jersians that need it
No to do those things…. Stay tuned.
