10 Mile Rock



From a friend that has a son deployed:
10 Mile Rock Website

Friends & Family,

I had an idea while walking the lake trail one day this week related to the “10 Mile Rock – In Memoriam” post from January 4, 2011.  What if I found sponsors to donate $.50 – $1.00 for each mile that I walk between January 1-March 31, 2001, to the Wounded Warrior Project in memory of the fallen Marines of the 2nd Battalion, 9th Marines?  How many wounded warriors could be helped?  Or, if someone wants to donate a specific amount, make them aware of that option.

This idea is one of the primary reasons for creating my blog (marinedadx2.blogspot.com).  Sponsors can track the number of miles I walk over the first 3 months of the year and give a tax deductible donation to the Wounded Warrior Project.  If others want to participate as a walker with sponsors, it would be great.

The capstone event, a 5 mile walk/run, will be held for walkers and sponsors on Saturday, March 26, 2011, at the small lake in the Carrington Lakes subdivision, Trussville, Alabama.  We’ll meet at the clubhouse, and begin the walk at 10:00 a.m.

I’m looking for sponsors and other walkers.  If you want to participate and donate to a very worthy organization, please send me an e-mail or call me.

About Capers Bar

I am retired Army officer. I used to fly helicopters and airplanes while I was in the Army. Nowadays, I do other things that are not so cool and sexy. I decided to write about my journey or whatever you want to call it towards running a half-marathon this fall. I have been running since 1983, I have run the Duke City full and half marathons. I don't run that fast anymore, I did win a 10K when I was 21, those days are mercifully past me. The fastest mile I have turned is a 5:05 during one of those Army physical fitness test 2 mile runs. The point I am making is that I am old, slow, and experienced runner. I named the blog after my running buddy, Bandit, an Australian Blue Heeler. He is my 3rd K-9 running buddy, the previous two dogs were black labs. I hope to write about some of my discussions that I have with Bandit in the future. I once owned, but since sold and a satirical and irreverent sports blog that was moderately successful. I was published in the left-wing national sports media by Sports Illustrated and ESPN. I am "stuck" in Alabama working for a military contractor. I am working so fricking hard to get back to Southeast New Mexico or West Texas. Fingers and toes crossed.
