Hello to all BUS and not only runners,
I would love to tell you about my two upcoming and very interesting events.
1st is Arctic Challenge – 230+ miles on ice!
The 1st week of April I will be running on the
frozen Mackenzie River starting 120 miles North from the Arctic Circle. Some of you may be familiar with the gruesome
TV show “Ice Road Truckers”. Well, it is the same river, the same ice, but
instead of driving a tractor trailer on it as the truckers do, I will be
running on it! The logistics of such run

smaller and I have been very lucky. I contacted a newly created Inuvik Run
Club. The members got very excited and
eager to assist as I made the call to them in the middle of 30 days of winter

This is a charity run for the Inuvik Homeless Shelter. The harsh weather and modern lifestyle have made it so that some of the natives are unable to cope and must turn to the shelter for protection.

This will be my 5th annual run to raise awareness and funds to help fight breast cancer in support of breast cancer patients. My 120-mile running route, which I have personally created, will start at North Woodmere Park (adjacent to JFK Airport) and end at Montauk Point. I will start running on April 30, 2011.
Since this run across LI is close to most of you in the Tri-State Area,
please consider joining me on any part of this run and participate in the
fundraising. We all know someone who has
suffered, is suffering, or may suffer from this illness. Let’s help.
Let’s fight the “C” word together so one day this illness will never exist!
