I am now up to $3,373 of my $4,295 goal of one dollar per mile. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far. I could not do any of this without your kind support! Let’s end MS!
This weekend, three friends (the Ironman, Twin, Roomie) and I will do FatCyclist.com’s 100 Miles of Nowhere (100MON) with a “Tour de Donut” twist.
To be clear…
100MON is a race formed to raise money for cancer. This year, Fatty (the FatCyclist) is putting all the money towards Camp Kesem, which offers a free summer camp to children affected or whose family is affected by cancer. Fatty’s first wife passed due to breast cancer about 4 years ago. He has been Livestrong’s biggest contributer ever since thanks to events like 100MON. This year’s 100MON could open an entirely new Camp Kesem campus. So we race for that.
100MON races are meant to be on painfully small courses. We are using the Western Maryland Rail Trail. It is flat, straight, and downright monotonous. But a simple place to rack up 100 miles. The race takes place where ever people happen to be racing, normally within a month either side of the “official” date of June 2.
Our Tour de Donut will be a competition between the 4 of us. All donuts eaten will subtract two minutes from our overall time. So if we finish as a pack, which we easily will, donut consumption will be the deciding factor.
We all like donuts and the ride will be a little over five hours long. The main limit will be how many dozen donuts we buy. Also, on such a lengthy day and given the fact that my friends have, more or less, not trained one bit this spring, we will all need to eat more than just donuts this Saturday.
