Word of the day: Optimism!

"Feeling determined!"

“Feeling determined!”

Happy Labor Day Weekend…hope you and yours enjoy a special one!

Training Update – Made it up to the Poto trail at Pinckney State Park yesterday for a long training run. It started out humid as all get out…my glasses kept fogging up!…and it got warm…I wrapped my knee just in case…and I got in a total of 32 miles with very little trouble. It was a good day! Feeling optimistic for the upcoming races in 4 weeks and 6 weeks especially the Oil Creek 100!

Honoree Update – My Sister Elizabeth is doing well….just had her third chemo this past Thursday (that part still sucks)…sent the attached picture…and says she is “feeling determined!” She has the Eye of the Tiger baby!

George is still waiting on tests to see if he qualifies for a trial. In the mean time, he’s visiting family and getting in a Packer’s football game! It’s football season!

Lots of optimism around here…I love it!

Donor Update –More donations have come in…thanks so much!  Big Woohoo! to our most recent generous donors Matt Folk and John Frank! Thank you so much!

Add this to our previous donations from … Debby Peters, Honoree George Evanoff, Kathy Pigott, Brendon Matthews, Honoree Karen Landis, James Hunt, Martha Lewis, and Mike and Shannon Irmen, Honoree Carol Haddix, Pam Weirauch, Michelle Marentette-Hermanutz, Shelley Foos, Michelle Ansara, Tom Spy for an awesome pledge, Violet Stoycheva, Kevin Simpson, Honoree Rodney Cundiff, Jenn Wenzke, long time Honoree Andrea Loch, and Deb Yeagle.

We are now at $2,030…which is 20% of our goal and more still pledged.  Every little bit helps…we are getting there!  Woohoo!

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 online at:  http://pages.teamintraining.org/noh/RoadRun14/ealewis

Or, if you want to send a check…make it out to: LLS…and mail it to me at: 3936 Elmhurst Road, Toledo, OH 43613

Run Steady, Run Strong!
