The taper continues and Mike's Extra Mile...

Today's workout consisted of 90 minutes on the recumbent bike and 30 minutes of walking on the treadmill.  (I had two episodes of DWTS to catch up on!) ☺

I have always been amazed at the strength and endurance of so many runners out there.  Today I'd like to share a story about one such runner, who happens to be the brother of a friend of mine.  Mike Evans is an ultra-runner.  He decided some time ago that he wanted to try and run across the entire state of Idaho, from the Oregon border in the west, to the Wyoming border in the east.  He has now put together his plan, to take place next month (June), and along the way he will be helping out an organization that aids local families who have children fighting cancer.  Another of my close friends (runner Holly) is the mother of one of those children, so this cause is dear to my heart.  I should also mention that Mike himself is a cancer survivor!

Please take a minute to read all about Mike and his quest on this website: www.mikesextramile.blogspot.com and then go to Facebook and "like" his page to follow along with him as he runs!

You can also go to the Idaho Fighters blog to read all about the courageous and sweet children from our area who are beating cancer.
