The world lost an incredible mother, wife, daughter, friend, attorney, underprivileged advocate, and community member suddenly and unexpectedly on October 16, 2013. In honor of my late wife, Holli Wallace, I am training for the Hallucination 100 mile trail run and raising money for the Children's Grief Center of the Great Lakes Bay Region.

Fat Ass Cancelled, Long Live the Fat Ass

Well, it looks like we got around 4 inches last night and the NOAA was recommending that people not travel so we decided not to drive down to Adrian until this morning. We might have been able to make it to Pinckney for the Fat Ass, but I'm not sure secondary dirt roads would be plowed early this morning and our little compact car is hardly a four-wheel drive monster. So, I swallowed my disappointment, gazed longingly at my neatly organized supplies, and opted not to participate in the run today. Good luck to everyone who made it down there as I'm sure the snow made it quite an adventure!

As a consolation, Holli suggested that I just run my own race tomorrow instead. So, early tomorrow morning I think I'm going to pack up and head to Silver Lake (the location of the run today) and just do the same thing as a solo event. We now have the biannual Brian Thomas marathon so why not the Brian Thomas Fat Ass 50 miler. I think I'll start a little earlier than the run today, perhaps around 8 AM, so if anyone out there wants to join me, drop me a post!

Brian, I should have asked you before Christmas. A deal? Fancy sunglasses for your wife or yourself if you make a small sponsorship to Guide Dogs for me? http://www.justgiving.com/toni_harvey/
Silly to throw away money on postage! Have a Happy New Year!

Brian - sorry you did not make it down for the Fat Ass. It turned out to be a good day. One runner ran the 50 miler and 15 ran the 50k. We has a bunch of other crazies show up to run between 5 and 22 as well.

I hope you can join us next year.
