We're 42 days away from honoring Pat Tillman, a true American hero. Everyone who reads this blog knows exactly the sacrifice that ASU's own Tillman made for our country.
Pat's Run is slated to begin at 7:00 AM on Saturday, April 16th, 2011. In case you haven't run the race before, here's a little information for you:
The 4.2 mile course winds through the streets of Tempe and is staged so that all participants finish on the 42-yard line on Frank Kush Field inside Sun Devil Stadium, symbolic of the #42 jersey that Pat wore while he was a Sun Devil.
When I ran this race a few years back, I was absolutely gassed by the time I crossed the 42-yard line. It's a worthy course that takes you on a scenic tour, crossing the town lake twice before ending up in Sun Devil Stadium.
Registration is currently $42 per participant, and you receive a lot for your payment: a nice running shirt, a goodie bag, some free food at the end of the race, and an excellent feeling of a job well done after crossing the finish line.
There's no better way to spend your Saturday morning, and by continuing to honor Pat Tillman's memory, you help celebrate the good in this world. Join House Of Sparky and register today.
