Why 400 Miles?

The one question I’m asked the most goes something like this:

“Why run 400 miles? The last run you did was 200 miles, why not run 250 or 300? Why double the distance?”

I’ll let Michael Jordan answer this question:

“Never say never because limits, like fears, are often just an illusion.” – Michael Jordan

I get it, 400 miles is a long distance to cover, running with no sleep. Its hard for people to comprehend why someone would want to put their body through so much pain and fatigue. People think its crazy, and they probably should.

Though it may be crazy, its a passion of mine. To push the body to the brink is something that I love doing. Its an amazing feeling of accomplishment when you cross the finish line for a running or endurance event, be it a 5k, 10k, marathon, or ultramarthon. It is something that gives you a sense of pride and accomplishment. To work hard towards a goal and accomplishing that goal, there is no better feeling than that.

So, to put it in words that anyone could understand, I’m running 400 miles for that sense of accomplishment. I’m running 400 miles to see if it is possible. I’m running 400 miles to see how far the human body can be pushed. I’m running 400 miles for The Ryan Seacrest Foundation. I’m running to do something that no one has done before.

Join me on my journey and follow along.

When's the next run?


When's the next run?

That's the question I get most often! 

Are you Planning anything?

Maybe I am. 

I don't want to bore everyone with the details, but It has been a wild year. After my 200 Mile run for Choc Children's, my Wife and I welcomed our first child into this world. We have been enjoying being new parents. If I have one complaint about being a parent...Parent's can complain right? It's that I've gotten a little out of shape, but if that's the price I have to pay for the joy that raising my son brings me, then so be it!!

Over the past few weeks, I've been able to get a routine down and I'm slowly getting back into shape.

So, am I planning anything? Maybe I am. What is it you may ask? Stay tuned to find out....


Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Below is an overdue thank you video shot by Greg King, to everyone for the successful 200-mile run. We took a small break from social media to rest after the run, but A Cause for Endurance is back with exciting plans for the future! The *incredibly* successful event (that raised just over $17,600!!!!) could not have been possible without your support, your donations, and your willingness to help. A Cause for Endurance thanks you, CHOC Children's thanks you, and the countless kids that will benefit from your generosity thank you. Feel free to like, share, and comment on the video below. We have more events planned to raise even more money for worthy causes. Let's get the word out!


Print it out! Keep a copy for yourself! Get out on the streets with me! 

None of this would not be possible with your donations, and your support. So along with supporting the kids at Choc Children's, I really hope to see as many people as possible outside, on the streets, on the big day. 

Don't hesitate to get in contact with me if you have any questions, and a direct link to donate is right there above us in the header.
