Economic Bailout (on a smaller scale)

Since Congress passed this 700 billion bailout bill I have decided to have a little fun of my own. As everyone know I am running the Marine Corps Marathon on Oct 26, 2008. I am running to raise awareness for Racing for Recovery. OK back to the point of this post. I was surfing around the web today and saw that there are 800 spots left in the Philly Marathon at a cheap price of 125.00 (that is crazy) it is more expensive then Boston. I think Philly is a great town to run through but for a 125 bucks that's a bit much. Although I do pay that to swim in the Surekill River :) we will talk about that more in the months to come.

I want to see who actually reads this blog and who is willing to step up. I want to see if people will be willing to pay my entry fee into the Philly Marathon so that I can once again bring awareness to Racing for Recovery. Any additional money will be sent directly to Todd. If I do not meet my goal there is no loss. This race is only 4 weeks after the marine corps marathon so there would be no all out racing just a nice 26.2 mile stroll through Philly. Let me know what you think. It is time for people to step up and yes you can write off your donation. Enjoy your weekend go Phils.
