This weekend I took part in the 4x4x48 challenge created by David Goggins— running 4 miles every 4 hours for 48 hours for a total of 48 miles. At times, the run was both exhilarating and exhausting, particularly those midnight and 4 am runs on minimal sleep. The donations and wide ranging support fueled my inspiration to complete the challenge!
A special thanks to the many donors and supporters that helped me raised over $13,000 for the Special Forces Warrior Foundation. Their mission is to provide educational support for the surviving children of Special Operations personnel who lose their lives in the line-of-duty and the children of Special Operators awarded the Medal of Honor and to provide immediate financial grants to severely wounded, ill, and injured Special Operations personnel who require hospitalization.
