I've been working to organize this half marathon and community walk since last October..or maybe September.
The event is in honor of my eighth grade english teacher, Ed Peck.
Here is the original post, where I talk about the beginning of the plan.
Well, things are moving along, and coming together nicely. The date of the event is Saturday June 4, 2011. The half marathon starts at 9 AM, from Tamarac school, where Ed taught. You can now register on-line at
"Make it a Great Day" Half Marathon
The one mile community walk starts at 10 AM and will take place on the school track. The purpose of the walk is to be sure that every one who wants to show their support for Ed, has a way to participate. There is no registration fee for the walk. Anyone who donates $50 or more will get a T-shirt. Donations can be made on the day of the race, or on-line through active.com
I started this process on a whim. And, so far it's been an incredible journey. I've met many new people, who have been kind and supportive, and as excited as I am. Ed Peck was an inspiration to me for many reasons. This event is a fantastic way to honor him, while doing something good for many people in the community.
If at all possible, please consider joining us on June 4, 2011.
As always, thanks for stopping by.
