This year, on Dec. 6, Zappos will be sponsoring the Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon!
We hope to have many Zapponians running the marathon and the half marathon, as well as volunteering in many different areas to help the event to be successful.
We are hoping to encourage as many people at Zappos to participate as we can, and in a meeting earlier this week, we were trying to decide who would be the most unlikely candidate to train hard, eat right and get in shape for a marathon, and Brett H. began to sink into his chair a bit. And then a lot. At one point he might have actually been under the table in the fetal position in a wild, fearful panic.
It slowly dawned on everyone that he would be the perfect candidate to inspire people to train….because he’s widely regarded as ‘un-trainable’. Tom E. and Rebecca L. pointed out that the motto should be: “If Brett can do it, why can’t you?”
So, after a bit of prodding and poking, laughing and joking, tears, fears and a deep desire for beers…....Brett said yes, yes, yes, he would begin training next week and run the Las Vegas Marathon. (Pending a Physical:)
We will be following his progress on Zappos Blogs, Facebook and Myspace.com
We’ll let him explain and let some of his friends at Zappos fill him with confidence…............
Check back next week to see Brett’s progress, and please comment below with any suggestions to help him out or with any words of encouragement!
