Our team logged 24,901 miles and 52.4 of these miles were run inside an NFL stadium
Did you Know? Run The World Challenge 2 team members Becca Pizzi and Michael Wardian both ran the marathon that was run inside the Gillette Stadium in Boston September 29. This 114 lap race was the first-ever marathon held entirely inside and on the field of an NFL football stadium. Dave McGillivray (also a RTWC 2 team member) was the race director. "Dave's marathons are my absolute favorite and his DMSE support team is second to none," says Becca. A ton of funds were raised for the New England Patriots Foundation helping the homeless...Both Becca and Michael have signed up for our RTW Challenge 3 team. Run The World is an event created by lifetime runner 70-year-old Bob Anderson. He ran 260 miles for challenge 2 and even through he did not complete anything close to what Becca and Michael did, he still doubled his normal mileage. Many team members were also motivated to run more hitting milestones of 50, 100, 200 or more miles before we finished. "The finish line of the RTW Challenge is when our team have logged 24,901 miles," says Bob Anderson. Runners age 11-74 ran miles in 24 different countries. In the little country of Palau 1,187 miles were logged. 74-year-old Frank Bozanich ran and logged 801 miles in the 44 days. There are so many amazing stories. What has become really popular and a good motivator is the Run The World Feed. Many team members post notes and photos daily for other members to leave comments. "I read every post and look at every photo and comment on each one," says Bob. "I started this with Challenge 1 and found this was a good motivator." Lize Dumon in South Africa wrote, "The RTW community is very precious to me. It is like an extended running family, a safe place to share everything running." RTW Challenge 3 starts October 29. The Challenge will help get you in better shape so you can reach your goals. This can be a tough time of the year to get out the door. We will help each other. Sign up today and join our team.
