Most of us have never had to go through the kinds of surgery and rehab Oden has had to endure. Those who have may know the physical and emotional pain that such recovery entails. To return to the level of elite NBA performance requires an almost unimaginable amount of dedication and mental toughness. I would like to lighten his emotional burden and help myself out at the same time.
I've been blessed with two good legs, but I've squandered that gift sitting in front of the TV and getting fat. Since Greg isn't due to be able to run for 5 months I propose we do some running for Greg.
I've created Oden Minutes as a Nike+ challenge and invite everyone who'd like to participate to join. It's set up to be 150 days starting 4/23/11, and the most miles in that time wins. Of course, just by participating we all win that much more health and we send Greg our support in his journey back the the hardwood.
Add your Nike+ moniker to the comments and I'll send you an invite, or you can add me as a friend "SteveTheHedge" and I'll get the invite to you.
