Lupus Runners

This week we finally got the fundraising page up for the Lupus foundation. I am so inspired by the people that responded to this so quickly and have learned that this disease touches many peoples lives. Hopefully they will be making some strides in finding a cure for Lupus but in the meantime we will be doing what we can to make a difference. You can be a part of it too by donating at:

Personally, i had another great week of running and feel rarin' to go for the Finger Lakes 50 miler. Miles for the week: 60

Monday= Rest
Tuesday= 8 miles on the Cayuga Trail and pink trails
Wednesday= 12 miles w/ Andrew down Warren Rd. to Asbury- Hanshaw- back behind airport-business park and back to apt.
Thursday= 14.5 miles in the pouring rain w/ Ian covering section 5 and 6 of The Iroquois Trails 100 course.
Friday= Cayuga Trail 5 miles
Saturday= 10.5 miles from Ian's store w/ Andrew, Wiley and Derrick through downtown-Stewart Park- Cayuga Heights- Cornell campus- back to store
Sunday= 5 miles in morning w/ Brad through Forest Home. I also did 5 miles in the dark w/ Scottie at night on the Tortoise n' Hare route through Buttermilk...that was intense.

Quote of the week: "I like running because it's a challenge. If you run hard, there's the pain - and you've got to work your way through the pain. You know, lately it seems all you hear is? Don't overdo it' and? Don't push yourself.' Well, I think that's a lot of bull. If you push the human body, it will respond."
