Today is the day Shannon The Dude is set to begin his 50-mile walk around Lexington with a $5,000 cash prize waiting for him at the finish line if he can complete his journey in under 20 hours. The whistle will blow to send him on his way tonight at 10:00 p.m. which gives him until 6:00 p.m. Friday to accomplish his mission: two full laps around the STD Trail.
