This October I’ll be running a different New England half marathon every Sunday during the month. I’m calling this the October Sunday Challenge.
I’ll be running the following four October races: Smuttynose Rockfest, B.A.A. Half Marathon, Baystate Half Marathon, and the White Mountain Milers Half.
I’m not doing this to fundraise, but to instead create awareness. I’m hoping any awareness I can create will shine a light on the fact that everyone must get their annual physical exam. You see, too many people are choosing to blow off their annual exam for a number of lame reasons: laziness, procrastination, fear, or even indifference. And as a person who found out first hand the importance of early detection, I can’t stress enough the importance of making that annual trip to the doctor.
I’ll share more on this over the next few weeks, but in the meantime, join me in passing the word along to everyone, “get a physical!”
