Well, after months of preparation, the journey to 100 races officially began this past Saturday at the Savage Race in Zanesfield, OH. This was my first time running a race in the Savage Race series, so I wasn't sure exactly what to expect, but it certainly did not disappoint. While the obstacles were relatively familiar with several other race series, the greatest obstacle was the venue itself. I guess had I looked up "Mad River Mountain", I probably would have realized prior to driving into the parking lot that it was in fact a ski hill.



Picture
I'll have video posted soon of running the course. As I stated above, the obstacles were pretty typical to many other obstacle races, but the running up and down double black diamond ski slopes was truly the most difficult part. If you're from Mount Pleasant, MI, or have been there, you know that "Mount" is pretty misleading, so my training has lacked any real elevation changes...especially for these type of hills. Talk about burning quads and calves!

Picture
My parents, my aunt Ruthie, and cousin Kimmy, also made the trip down. It was great to share the kick-off event with them and to have them cheering me on as I started this journey. Some folks at the race even started to take notice of the cause. A few of the runners saw the back of my shirt and urged me on and wished me luck for the rest of the year. When I finished, I also had the opportunity to interview with the finish line announcer and tell anyone who was listening just what I was running for, as he encouraged them all to check out Run to Remember.

So now it's begun. After months of planning and preparation, it's time for me to push my physical limits to make this year all about bringing awareness to Alzheimer's disease and to reach the goals I've set out to meet - 100 races. 52 weeks. $1 million for the Alzheimer's Association. One down; 99 to go. 

Tomorrow I'll post about race #2 from Sunday, and a great experience at the Warrior Dash in Illinois. Warrior Dash has already shown great support to me and Run to Remember, and they definitely showed me the love on race day. But more on that in the actual post...

A router gets its name from its function it routes your internet signal throughout your household computer network, directing it according to your needs. A router allows you to link all the computers in your home to the internet, usually to a printer, and sometimes to other peripherals or gaming systems. In computer jargon, the network you set up in your home is called a "local area network," usually shown by the acronym LAN. The signal from your internet service provider is called a "wide-area network" (WAN). Your router establishes the critical connection between the WAN and the computers in your LAN.
