One lap will be better than all the other laps

Remember my new friend, Andrew?

The other half of StrideAndJoy‘s Tracey? The Andrew and Tracey who added the Pittsburgh Marathon to their race schedule this year for an awesome weekend with me and RunningHaiku‘s Charla? The guy who showed up at our first-ever meeting for the Pittsburgh Marathon 5K IN JORTS? The guy who would totally be added to my boyfriend list except for the rule I have that if I know they guy’s wife and she is lovelier than all loveliness, then he immediately becomes ineligible? Yeah, THAT Andrew. If you haven’t been paying attention, then I have two words for you: PAY ATTENTION.

AndrewPay special attention because on July 20th in Philadelphia, Andrew will be running 24 hours straight to raise money for Back on My Feet. The object of the challenge is to run as many laps of the 8.4-mile course as possible in 24 hours. [Let that seep in for a sec – he is running 24 hours straight! CRAZY!]. The best part? Andrew will be donning jorts for one of these laps!!

If you haven’t heard, Back on My Feet is a non-profit organization that helps people who are homeless to rebuild their lives through running. It is a growing organization with chapters in Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Indianapolis,  Maryland, New York City, and Washington DC.

You can support Andrew’s efforts and this great organization here.

    Thank you again Jill. For this fine post, you’ve earned two laps in jorts.
