Photo taken just after the finish last year, having just ran 96 miles.
The challenge itself last year was pretty simple. I challenged the students at Stewartville Middle School - I went to school there and currently teach 6th grade there - to exercise for a total of 24 hours over a 10 week period. In return, I ran/walked a 4 mile loop around Stewartville for 24 hours from 8:30am May 7th - 8:30 am May 8th. This years challenge will likely be very similar.
Coming in for the finish with a 2 squad car escort for the final 1 1/2 miles.
