Hello My Friends,

As you may know I enjoy ultrarunning. The aches and pains of running absurdly long distances up and down mountains reminds me of how life is too short not to push your limits and find what you’re truly capable of accomplishing. When I first started running I did a 5K and thought “that wasn’t too bad”. Then came a 10K...10 miler...half marathon...all the way up to a few 50 milers. The defining distance for any ultrarunner is 100 miles. I’ve tried this distance once but stopped short at 60 miles. Although I failed I have not lost sight of my goal. 

On January 2nd, lottery registration for the Vermont 100 opens. I applied last year but was put on the wait list and ultimately didn't get in. I was disappointed, to say the least, considering I trained as if I had an entry.

This year, I have decided to try a different approach. The main purpose of the Vermont 100 is to raise funds for the Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports program. This program allows for people of all ages and abilities to participate in the sports they love and may not otherwise be capable of doing.

Two hobbies I'm passionate about are sports and volunteering/fundraising with my free time. In a way, this is a chance for me to accomplish both at once. If I can raise $1,500 for Adaptive Sports, I am then guaranteed a spot in the race next July. If so, this 100 mile race will also be my 100th race I’ve competed in. Perfect timing. 

I am seeking your financial help in accomplishing this goal. Those that are close to me can attest that I feel very uncomfortable with asking for help of any kind. That said, I am very excited about stepping out of my comfort zone and pursuing this goal. To kick things off I have donated $100!

I will run 100 miles.

I will raise $1,500.

I will always appreciate any support you can give.

Thank you,

Jeff
