Meet Mike Sheehy - Guinness World Record Holder!

You've all read my blogs about my crazy Cures Rock! adventures....many of them in thanks to my good friend, Mike Sheehy, who likes to use his endurance running talent to help me kick cancer to the curb. The inspiration he's provided to so many cancer patients and survivors like me is endless!!

On June 6, 2010, Mike broke the Guinness World Record (GWR) for "most amount of miles run in one week by an individual" (He holds the record at 408.4 miles.) And, he did it all in the name of kickin' cancer to the curb! Two words = Holy macaroni!!

If you're in the Southern California area, you'll have a chance to meet Mike TOMORROW, as he'll be sharing about his GWR adventures and why he did it! They'll be stories, a "fun run," prizes and snacks!

WHERE: The Running Center - Temecula
TIME: 6 p.m. sharp
WHAT: Mike Sheehy Meet-Up re: Guinness World Record

  • The Running Center will start at 6pm with Mike Sheehy sharing his GWR stories (and lies) for a few minutes. Maybe it'll take 10-15 mins?
    Then, they'll allow time for autographs/photos/making-fun-of-Mike. How many times can you say you met a Guinness World Record holder? ;) Bring a camera.
  • All this will be followed by an optional "fun run" (with routes of 2, 4 or 6 miles). You do not have to stay for the fun run, but walkers and runners are welcome (so if you're not a runner, grab a map, come on out an walk a couple miles...I think it ends at a dog park, so bring your dog if you're so inclined). Be ready to go in your running/walking gear if you're coming!
  • Following the run, they'll have some snacks, pizza, etc. (that's right...no foodie until after you burn some calories!)
Even if you can't stay for the run, it'll be a fun chance to hear from Mike for a couple minutes, or at least slap him on the back for being crazy enough to run 408 AMAZING miles in one week, all in the name of kicking cancer to the curb. If you have any local running friends -- please let them know, too!

I'll also be there, so anyone up for a "Cures Rock! Meet-Up"....come on out!!
