A Moment of Silence

Today was "final prep"for our Team in Training Marathon Team....which means, our races are next weekend! It's hard to imagine that four months ago, most of this team had never run more than a few mile and now they are prepped and ready to run their first 13.1 or 26.2 mile race. The whole team has been training as an effort to raise funds to fight cancer. San Diego's total raised to date so far.... a whopping $700,000!!! (My team has raised $275,000, with a goal to hit $350,000 by the end of season.) Go ahead...say it...that's FREAKISHLY AWESOME!

There was something very special about today's run. The Team added a half-mile run in silence in honor of Memorial Day and all those that have served our country. We also ran in memory of all those that have gone before us in this fight against cancer. Very powerful. Please consider doing something similar in your runs and rides this weekend -- and pass it on. Just take 5 mins to sit/ride/run/walk in silence in and remember those we honor for Memorial Day.

Tomorrow...the adventure continues, as our crazy San Diego crew is up to more extreme stunts to raise funds to find a cure for cancer (what?! You didn't really think we'd stop after the Cures Rock! Tour run to PHX, did you?). Mike Sheehy begins his amazing attempt to beat the current Guinness World Record for most amount of miles run in one week by an individual. The goal? To beat the $3o,000 we raised in January! If you're in San Diego, join us for the starting kick-off tomorrow at the Hilton Mission Bay. Meet us near the boardwalk at the TNT/GWR tent by 11:30am.

  1. Very cool, Julie. I wrote a tribute to San Diego teams everywhere (and Tahoe and Fletcher Flyer cycle teams, which events on the same weekend) on my blog. Good luck to Mike. Art

A great reminder that I had armies of support beside me in my fight. (Thanks, Lance!) Even with the recent media, this video isn't about the bike...but the fight against cancer. LIVESTRONG!
