Today's post is an exercise in questionable choices.
A while back, Eric was contacted by one of his strategic partners, Prison Fellowship. They were hosting a 5K fundraiser in Colorado Springs in support of their Second Prison Project, which seeks to raise awareness of difficulty prisoners have post-incarceration in finding gainful employment, and being accepted back into society, which contributes to recidivism. This was to be their inaugural event, and one of Eric's contacts at PF was flying in from Washington DC to be there. So we said we would participate.
Then I forgot about it and said I would participate in the Climb4Change. Then I forgot about that... and I ended up registering for both last week when I got my head out of my rear and remembered my commitments.
My friend Susan agreed to join us, and I planned to walk the route with her. Susan is a runner, but she's on injured reserve at the moment, and I figured that I would be sore (true) from the Climb the day before.
So that was the plan.
