For those that are interested, I am running a 50 k plus endurance run starting about midnight this Friday to Saturday morning in the woods of Hell MI.

I am doing it in honor of our 50 states of patriots, delegates and freedom fighters that all hung in there over the past several years to get us where we are today.

I acknowledge the sacrifices made by each of you and know it has been a lot of work. You encountered pains, lack of energy, mental blocks and more. You persevered and made it further than anyone thought possible......and are coming back for more!

For that, I will represent the rEVOLution this Friday. I will bear the the logo on my arms as tribute and push the envelope as far as my legs will take me. I will fight as you did through the pains, energy crunch and mental blocks. THE GOAL IS 50K FOR EACH STATE.

If you are interested in tracking my live progress, I will have a GPS AP called Map my Run with me. You can log in and locate my position in the woods with pace, heart rate, distance etc...

Here is how you access it:

"dexterszyd@gmail.com"

I'm writing to tell you about MapMyRUN, a free online fitness community where you can track your fitness goals.

Using the MapMyRUN mobile app, you can record your activities and workouts (pace, distance, map, speed, time and more) and automatically sync to the web.

If you're on your iPhone, Android, or BlackBerry, go to the app store and search for MapMyRUN. If you're on the web, go to http://www.mapmyrun.com and sign up.

Once you sign up, add me as a friend. You can follow my progress during the races with the "Live Tracking" feature.

Let's do this!

Also if interested the venue is called "Run Woodstock" http://www.runwoodstock.com/index.php?option=com_frontpage&I...

There will be a great line up of bands for 3 days and a great group of people.

come out and see if your close.

I will post pics after the event and am looking forward to representing the rEVOLution!

That's awesome!

I only wish I could run that far. I just started running for the first time since middle school, about 20 years, and I'm up to 2.5 miles.

I hope you have a great run and I salute you as well.

For liberty!

Go for it!

By the way, were you there the year Hell froze over, some decades back?

(I heard that, on a many-negative-degree day, the ice broke a small dam, there was a low flood down Main Street, and it quickly froze solid about six inches deep. I was wondering if this was just a story or an actual historical tidbit?)

That means: For each job "created or saved" about five were destroyed.

It's true

Hell was frozen solid. I live about 10 miles from there and was just as cold....

Such a creative masochistic (?) way to remember us, DEX!

Have a grand early autumn run! -y

Good luck, dexter; sounds excruciating,

but I hope on some level it is fun for you too, and fulfilling.

"Hell" yeah :D

Nice Event.
Do you ever participate in the paintball war in Hell, MI? Good Times...

I use Blue Wave, but don't expect one of THEIR silly taglines.

No, I've seen it out off D19 but never had

We used to have some serious paintball conflicts in Novi at my brothers house though....is the Hell battleground cool?

I don't know where others

I don't know where others would do this, but I dang sure ain't coming to MI, lol.
