Dear Family and Friends,
After the loss of my father, William "Bill" Moffett in June 2012, I have been on a personal mission and/or journey. With the love and support of my wife, my children, my family and my friends I have lost over 50 lbs and have either completed or I am scheduled to complete 13.1 miles in Champaign, 20 miles in St. Charles, and countless additional runs, crossfit workouts and activities. This is why I have decided why stop there? Many people think I can be a little OCD anyway...
So, I recently accepted the challenge to run the Chicago Marathon this October for the Diabetes Action Team, in memory of "Bill". As part of this team, I will be working towards my goal of running 26.2 miles while raising money for diabetes research through the Diabetes Action Research and Education Foundation (www.diabetesaction.org).
Diabetes is one of the most common and serious chronic diseases in the United States. The incidence of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes is rapidly increasing. 26 million Americans have diabetes, and 1 million more are diagnosed every year. This includes 15,000 children who are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes each year.
You can help!
I have set a personal goal of $6000 in order to be the largest single fundraiser, for Diabetes Action Research and Eduction Foundation, in the Chicago Marathon. All of the money I raise for the Diabetes Action Research and Education Foundation will fund research to prevent, treat, and cure diabetes. Every dollar counts so please donate what you can. Together, we can make a difference.
Thanks so much for your support and encouragement!
My Personal Web Log
Chicagoland Spring Marathon & 1/2 Marathon
So... I signed up for this 1/2 marathon last week... Might have not been the best idea, but definitely a learning experience.
I learned that
-weather does matter...
-diet does matter...
-preparation does matter...
-no matter how much you want to do better than the last time, sometimes it's just out of your control...
-Walking is ok...sometimes racing just becomes survival!
This was the warmest race I have done since starting on this journey. It was 75 degrees in Schaumburg, IL by the time I was done with my 2 hour and 8 minute "survival" run. This was slower than the IL 1/2, but like I said... "Warm Weather Running is a different Monster than Cold Weather Running"... By the time I was done all of my clothes where soaked in sweat. I actually took off my shirt after the race and rung it out next to my car.
My legs aren't as bad as after the IL 1/2, but my feet are just as bad. I have also started experimenting with Ice Baths... This is just as painful as the run, maybe even more so, atleast for the first 30 seconds... So far they seem to help with recovery...
I also came up with this idea of letting people know what goes thru someones mind while running for 2 hours straight... Here we go...
10. Warm Weather Running is definitely different than Cold Weather Running
9. I prob. shouldn't have mowed the lawn last night.
8. I wonder if 4 hours of sleep is enough to get me thru this today.
7. I do not like Blue Gatorade.
6. You don't have to Personal Record (PR) every race.
5. They said this course was flat...
4. Sometimes "racing"becomes SURVIVAL!
3. Sometimes pain just hurts.
2. Where did the pace team go.......
1. It's softball you can't cry, right?
I think I might cry...
Also, a special Thank you to one of my biggest supporters... Jamie Sloan who road his bike out to the race today to support me. Thank you Brother!
