The seventh year is off to a great start. There is a lot going on, so I hope I can keep up.
In this post I would like to highlight my local running club, Corridor Running. They have been a partner of this challenge for a long time. Not only do many club members join and support the challenge, they offer some shirts to giveaway as prizes.
Corridor Running is a non profit running club. They strive to give back to the community through running. That’s right, my non profit gives back to other non profits. In addition to the now 9 races and social runs, the club also offers membership. These are the main sources that create the funds to then give back to organizations such as Shelter House, Habitat for Humanity, the Boys and Girls Club, the Madge Phillips center and many more. This is all because we choose to run.
If you want more information about how to be involved let me know. We are always in need of volunteers. Here is what our 2020 race schedule looks like:
- February – Freezefest, Marion, IA Squaw Creek Park
- March – Shamrock Shuffle, Iowa City, IA

- May – Marion Arts Fest, Marion, IA
- July – 5th Seasons Race, Cedar Rapids, IA

Also some exciting news, The Iowa River Power Company / Flannigan’s is back for the middle of the month accountability prize, so get to 50 miles by the 15th of the month and you can win!!!!!
Another exciting prize – fellow participant Clythie has donated some 2Toms samples, so I have 2 prizes to giveaway. Congratulations to Dan B and Bruce B. I will be in touch!
I am blown away by the responses for the featured participant questions. I know the posting is a lot in facebook, but I will try to keep all important information in a blog post, and as a pinned post to the top of the page. There is also the description box on the page that will contain the link to the spreadsheet.
Now that the housekeeping is out of the way…. WOW, the commitment to the challenge this year. I think we have a record number of participants. Everyone has such awesome goals and is providing the motivation I need. I just finished the last race I had signed up for, I need the push to get to 100 miles. Please keep up the great work, let us know where you are running, what your struggles are, what you are accomplishing, what you are learning, etc.
