But somehow, time passes, summer winds down, and I feel like maybe I'd regret it if I didn't do it again. And as October approaches, I realize that of course I'd regret it. The amount of positive feedback I get from people like you always keeps me going right up until the end. People have said this project inspires them. Well you inspire me. Your comments, your words of encouragement, your donations, your own random acts, they motivate me much more than you probably realize.
So this year, I thought I'd try something different: Planning ahead. I know, I know. It's a little bit crazy. Well, don't worry, there's plenty more crazy in store so stick around.
I've already signed up for not one, but two 5k charity runs. If you're local and you'd like to run, walk, crawl, and/or keel over with me, please let me know.

(* - I'd better cap this thing at 60 days, just to be safe... Otherwise I might need to recruit some additional participants to fill in for me.)
[UPDATE: Check out my 44 Good Days: Special Edition post if you'd like to play along with me!]
I'll make you a deal on this one too: If the total donations on my page exceeds $500, I will shave my head. Double that, and the facial hair goes too.

And with that, I'd better get back to the exercise bike. I'm following a modified Couch-to-5k program because, I mean look at me! Do I look like a runner to you?
