For those of you that missed it, this is a great run for a great cause!
We were honored to have a former military Purple Heart winning hero and his wife on our boat for the run. It is a fantastic experience to meet some real down-to-earth God fearing Americans (yes there are some left in this country) and spend the day sharing our sport with them. We ran over 150 miles and had an absolute blast doing it!
Don't miss it next year!

Yet another near and dear to my heart cause. Great to see the troops getting some love. Hope some pics pop up of these events.

Well snap dragon, that's a nice way to wake up early on a Sunday. Thanks for that Jim. Looks like quite the turnout. Maybe next year I can see all the fun in person.

My fifth year. Great event for a great cause. Couple pics (crappy iPhone). Milling around before start, B group taking off, us running out front in the C group, and the pool party/bikini contest Saturday at the Toad.
