In 2012, I turned 30, had my first mid-life crisis, and decided to run 60+ miles over the course of eight days in eight states traveling via Megabus. The annual running trip now enters its fourth year, and I am delighted to have one of my best buds and Fraternity brothers (Brad Carlson) by my side throughout the trip. My running trips have sparked something for me, and I've kept my journey going on my blog - www.agoodrun.com.

This year's route will take us to Savannah (GA), Charleston (SC), Myrtle Beach (SC), Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill (NC), Charlotte (NC), Asheville (NC) and Knoxville (TN).

I will be dedicating this year's trip to my good friend Neil Alexander, who lost his battle with ALS this year.

I will once again be raising funds for Phi Delta Theta's Iron Phi program. My fundraising goal is $3,578, bringing my total to $16,000. 50% of the dollars raised will be donated to The ALS Association to fight Lou Gehrig's Disease (ALS research). ALS is an awful disease and one that we Phi Delts want to help erradicate. The other 50% of the dollars raised will support the Phi Delta Theta Foundation, an organization that has provided me with great experiences, opportunties, mentors, core values and friends.

To celebrate the generosity of those who donate, I'll be continuing the scavenger hunt approach. Below is a list of all seven cities and the landmarks that I will be passing on my routes. You can "purchase" any amount of the route stops below. In return, you'll get a picture of me with a personalized thank you sign that recognizes you in front of that landmark. I will be blogging throughout the week and my posts will include the pictues thanking donors. Runner's choice stops are yet to be determined, but I always have a lot of fun with these. Make sure to include which landmark(s) you want to "purchase" when you make your donation. I will then update this page.

You can make a donation on this page by clicking on the "Make a Gift" link below the thermometer. You can also send a check made out to Iron Phi to me if you'd rather donate that way. Message me on Facebook for my address.
