Watch me LIVE!!
Oct 28, 2012 by Ryan Naab

Here are two links to watch me run live, I suggest the racemyrace site as it has awesome detail! U.S. time I will be running Monday Oct. 29th from 4am until roughly 9am, because of the time zone change and the week early daylight savings change here. Just copy and paste one of the links below into the address bar, and cheer me on before heading out the door to work! My bib number is 17604

Oct 25, 2012 by Ryan Naab

Well I am off to Dublin, Ireland in less than 24 hours!! I am super excited but also nervous. I've trained and fundraised all summer and because of all of you I was able to make this happen and reach over my goal of $6,000 for people affected by leukemia/lymphoma!! We've done great!! ...oh and I kept my promise, THE HAIR IS GONE! See you all when I get back :-)

Overflowing reasons I've received of why I'm out here doin' what I do. Ireland next week!

Well I better stick behind my words. Earlier in the season when I started training and fundraising I had told a friend I would allow her to shave my head running in honor/memory of everyone afftected by this disease, if and only if I hit my personal goal of $6,000. As of today we are $262.93 short of losing the hair. Is it gonna happen...stay tuned!?

Today was the longest distance I had ever accomplished, 20 miles! I am starting to feel a little more comfortable about doing the 26 miles as this happens next month already! I was reminded this early morning why I am out here as a teammate shared a mission moment before our run. A friend of hers by the name of Jane was brought to our attention last Saturday Sept. 1st before our run. She passed around a picture of this 8 year old girl standing along side her hospital bed full of energy with her blue sparkly wig. She was put on hospice care Sept. 5th and lost her battle the next day from leukemia at the age of 8 years old. She was telling friends and family about the things she wanted to bring with her to heaven including her blue wig and assortment of bracelets. In memory of Jane we all tied on a blue sparkly ribbon to our shoe, reminding us why we are out here when the miles get tough and we wanna give up.

    "Hi Ryan, We wish you well as you train. I did the Duathlon last year for TNT and loved it. I work in the Osseo Schools with ECSE and was at Fair Oaks for a couple of years. Thank you for taking the time to raise money for this cause. Our daughter, Kelsey, is alive today because of research funded by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. THANK YOU!!! Best wishes as you train. Rachel and Doug Arntson"

    "Ryan, I want to wish you the best on the day of your race. I am a breast cancer survivor (6yrs) and I just walked the Susan G. Komen 3-day 60 mile walk last month in the cities. I cannot even begin to tell you all the emotions that are involved in doing something like this. All the hard work and training will be so worth it when your day comes and you will be on top of the world when you come across that finish line knowing that you have just made a difference in fighting cancer. I will be thinking of you on the day of your race..Shelly Meyer"
