This is brilliant. Mile 17 is usually the point where I need to seriously buckle down mentally. Setting up a contract where Heather raids my wallet of say….$100 if I don’t hit my goal and then donates it to the NEA or any number of organizations that make my blood boil (anything communist leaning would definitely do it) could get me over the hump toward the 3:40 I have been inching toward since 2004. Being a cautious and detail-oriented individual, I would no doubt structure the contract with a few tiers regarding the amount of the donation.
