2008 Diabetic Runner Challenge

Inspired by the UN's World Diabetes Day, Jamie over at The Diabetic Runner has come up with the 2008 diabetic runner challenge. This is a personal pledge to run 500 or 1,000 miles in 2008 to raise awareness for diabetes. Currently there are 6 participants for the 1,000 mile challenge and 2 participants for the 500 mile challenge. In the future the challenge may grow to become a fund raising campaign or hopefully if enough people sign up a national awareness campaign. In order to really generate interest in this Jamie needs as many people as possible to take the plunge!

Just click the picture above to sign up! So are you up for the challenge?

that's cool! Are you doing it? Do you have to be a diabetic to sign up? How long do you have to complete the 1000 miles?

wow! good luck to you. That equals to about 2.75 miles everyday of the year 2008. I'll be doing awesome if I could do that 5 days a week let alone 7 days! Good luck to you. If anyone can do it, it is YOU. :))
