50 in 50

In response to the devastation Hurricane Katrina did to the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Vicksburg native Samuel Thompson ran - not from the problems, but for them.

Thompson, 25, of Vicksburg plans to complete his journey Saturday of running 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 consecutive days, all to raise awareness of the Mississippi Gulf Coast's continuing recovery from Hurricane Katrina.

I can't tell you how impressed I am. I'm finding it a strain at times just to keep up the blogging efforts for hurricane relief. This guy has made a true commitment.

Check out his web site, and note that in addition to running for the cause, he is also blogging.


  • wow. I scanned his website--pretty impressive, eh?
