In honor of Steve

Yesterday, Wednesday June 8th, 2011 marked the 1000th consecutive day of running for Steve Jones ( blog | @way0utwest ).  The SQL Community and supporting friends did an amazing job of trying to run 1000 miles yesterday as a tribute to Steve.  The final total was 454 and RedGate is donating that amount of money to Steve’s favorite charity (thanks RedGate!).

I emailed some of my co-workers that are runners and asked if they would be willing to run and log their miles.  As I expected, many of sent an immediate reply of “Yes!” and then happily followed up yesterday with their mileage.  A quick shout out to…

Jonathan (4), Colleen (4), Jason (4), Kathleen (4), Lisa (4), Kaitlin (4), Jeff (8) and Carissa (3)

Run with Steve!

Run with Steve!

You all rock!

I managed to run 4 miles, and as a group we totaled 39 miles!  Thanks to all of you for running and battling yesterday’s heat!  I so appreciate your participation; I work with some awesome people.

To Steve: congrats on a milestone.  1000 consecutive days is an amazing accomplishment, my hat’s off to you sir.
