Not to detract from the important post on Are, just wanted to post on my hot, humid Louisiana run tomorrow. You can follow along via CancerRunner. Summary below:
On May 20 beginning at 6AM, a LSU graduate, endurance athlete and cancer survivor will begin running and continue until he reaches the 50 mile mark. For Paul Sibley, running is a way to relax. So running 50 miles is very relaxing. A native of Louisiana who now lives in Hawaii, Paul survived squamous cell carcinoma, surgery, recurrence, radiation and went on to run 100 miles 6 months later. That was 2006, now at 39, Paul continues to raise awareness for cancer research in hopes that one day, there will be a cure.
Local runners will join Paul on his journey as he continues his quest to make a small difference. Donations will benefit the wonderful research at Mary Bird Perkins. Please visit CancerRunner.org for more information and real time posts of Paul's run.
