Amazing Things

I want to do something amazing and I want do something amazing with my running.  It is in the runner’s DNA that something incredibly fantastic is happening during every run and they want to show it in an incredibly fantastic way.  This is not new to humanity and this is not new to runners.  For Example:
Dean Karnazes: Currently running from California to New York in 75 days to raise money for kids.
Joe D’Amico:  Trained for the Los Angeles Marathon eating ONLY McDonalds’ food and placed 29th.  (He has GOT to be a Toilet Runner!!)
Noah Coughlin: Currently running from California to Florida to raise money for little known Batten’s Disease
Mark Covert: Has run every single day since 2002 (over 12,480 days in a row without rest)
These are amazing things.  These are the kinds of things I want to do. Sure I have my ideas-maybe run a race while eating an entire 3 course meal (and place 1st), maybe run every street in Wichita (borrrrring), how about run while knitting sweaters for homeless kittens (too many needles) . 
Either way-I know my running is amazing.  I can tell every time I finish a run that I have just done something incredible and it feels great-and I know I want everyone to do this and feel the way I feel.  So for now, I will continue to run my same old amazing runs at the gym and around the block.  But the day is coming when something truly amazing and superbly cool will be done through my running.  

P.S.-please leave ideas
