37ish Finally and Flexi Toes! – Training Update

Flexing my toes!
Flexing my toes!

Training Update –
Finally got a good long run,37ish miles, at Pinckney State Park on the Potowatomi trail…felt great!  It got hot, was about 90% humidity, the skeeters were thick, knee still acted up, and my right quad kept cramping, but all of that was ok…got it done!

The best part was taking my shoes off at the end and flexing my toes…such a good feeling!  Blessed that I can enjoy so much…

We have less than 2 weeks till race day #1…The Eastern States 100… oh boy!

Honoree Update –
My sister Elizabeth is doing good…gets her next chemo treatment this week.  Took George to church last week, and he was as chipper as usual.  Both are hanging in there…they are tough as nails!

Donor Update –
Big Woohoo! to our generous donors…long time Honoree Carol Haddix who donates every year and friend Pam Weirauch with a generous pledge!  Thank you both!

Add this to our early donations from Shelley Foos, Michelle Ansara, Tom Spy for an awesome pledge, and Violet Stoycheva, Kevin Simpson, Honoree Rodney Cundiff, Jenn Wenzke, long time Honoree Andrea Loch, and Deb Yeagle and we are now at more than 7% of our goal!  Woohoo!

Thank you Everyone!

If you have a family member or friend with cancer or lost to cancer that I can run for, please send me their name and their story.  I would be honored to run for them!

It takes more than one person to make up a team and that’s why I’m asking you to consider donating!  Your donation will help fund treatments through LLS that save lives every day; like immune-therapies that use a person’s own immune system to kill cancer. Every single donation helps save a life with breakthrough therapies such as these!

I need your help to reach my $10,000 fundraising goal for cancer research!  Please consider a donation.  We need all the help we can get to fight the good fight.  Thank you!  You can donate at:  http://pages.teamintraining.org/noh/RoadRun14/ealewis

Run Steady, Run Strong!
