Posted by Run The Edge on Sep 12, 2017 11:17:24 AM

A month ago we, interviewed one of our Amerithon participants, Jim Powers, to see what it was like doing the challenge as a team. Jim and his wife Deborah Lea-Powers are on a team together, striving to reach the finish line at the Washington Monument. After completing 2,016 miles in 2016 for the Run The Year 2016 Challenge, they wanted to find out how to stay motivated and continue staying active. Not only do they have to complete 3,521 miles to finish the challenge, but they get to virtually travel across the USA as they earn badges for each landmark they pass along the way.

Hobby + Passion + Creativity = Miles of Memories
