My friend Blaine Moore is doing this thing for Camp Sunshine in Maine this month where he runs 1 mile on the first day, 2 miles on day two… well. you get the idea. Day 31 is Saturday, and he’s inviting you all to Camp Sunshine to join in for all or part of the month’s final 31 mile run. Feel free to donate whether or not you can make it to Maine.
