The 192 Crew Car


The Run 192 Crew is doing a fantastic job keeping Dan healthy on his arduous path. They drive ahead of him 5 miles at a time to provide a mobile support station. They have all the supplies Dan could need, like Hammer Gels in various flavors, stuff like Perpetuim and Success Caps. I have no idea what any of this stuff is, but it provides the energy and nutrients that a long distance runner requires. I hear "plain" is the flavor of choice for Danno, as the crazy flavors get old after dozens of miles. I'm sure the last thing he'd want is a banana-lime gel after a hundred miles.

But as you can see from the pic, the Crew's car also serves as a mobile banner for the Run 192 and Dana Farber's mission, and helps locals track them down. It's a silvery brown Nissan Murano. They've already had numerous cars honk their horns at them in support!

In fact, about an hour ago a gentleman named Marc saw the van and was inspired. He ran a mile alongside Dan! His Aunt suffered with cancer so he was very sympathetic to the cause.

Dan's been running for 9 hours now, and through his nifty GPS setup, I can see that he's in Franklin, MA now. He's making great time.

I'm gunna give Danno a donation report in a couple of hours. Let's see you guys out there can get over the $4,000 hump so I can give him great news. Click here and give 5, 10, 100...whatever you can!

I've had this on rss for months, it's just that for some reason, today it decided to stop updating :(
But I've worked some magic, and it's back! :)
