Racing to Save Lives



Hey everyone. I wanted to give you an update on my training. Things are going good. We are running three miles on Saturday and three to four times during the week.



James is doing great. He will return to MDA at the end of the month to receive his monthly chemo and antibiotic and also a doctors visit.



Please join me in the race to find a cure. Thank you to all who have supported me thus far.

    "Hi Mark, a couple suggestions on the swim thing from someone who has been there. First, swimming in your trunks is fine, just tighten them up and the drag will be an extra good workout. Second, get a pair of tri-shorts and practice in them occasionally (try these: http://www.rei.com/product/795453). Finally, if you can find someone who will give you a swim lesson and tape your stroke above and below the water line, it we be a tremendous help. I had what I thought was a decent stroke until I saw the underwater video of myself plowing through the water like a tugboat. Very illuminating. So keep practicing and get out into open water once it warms up. Ryan"
