Guys, you have got to get and to have the event on their list for exposure if you want it to grow. I have participated every year. And as it is now, the blurb you have doesn't even give a start time. Also runners want their results to be official so get them posted so they can add them to their logs or page etc.
just want the event to continue and grow.

Made of wool, a natural fiber can often be used when making infant garments. This is because it helps retain warmth specially in the first three months of an baby's life. During this time period, a baby cannot really control their own temperature as a result the intervention is necessary.

Hi Kansas Runners,

This is Perry Fields (author of The Tick Slayer)- I realize that fighting Lyme and recovering from it seems like a marathon, not a sprint (probably why I'm a sprinter now). I encourage everyone to keep fighting and going, because there is ALWAYS hope out there, no matter how sick you really get. I was once bed bound and thought I would never return to track and field, but I did. After a five year recovery, I'm healthier and FASTER than I ever was. All the best to everyone!

Letter to Kansas Lyme Fighters from Angela concerning this 5 K Race:

First and foremost, congratulations on making a significant enough recovery from Lyme Disease to be able to run and congratulations to you and your family for wanting to do this 5K run!!!!!!! I wish I could be there in person to cheer you all on, but please rest assured I will be doing so from Maine!

Second, I have to correct you, I did not win a marathon, I simple particpated in one. Last year I ran in the NYC Marathon and finished in 4:12:58, not bad for my first ever marathon, but far, far off the winning time (though I did come in before Al Roker, Merideth Viera and the Chilean miner).

I am making the assumption from this email that you have not done any running before or are a novice to running/ racing. There is a fantastic online training program called "Couch to 5K" and I would strongly recommend starting ASAP as your race is just around the corner.

BUT, my biggest piece of advice is this, just enjoy running regardless of what your times are, what your ability is, NEVER compare yourself to any other runners and take a great deal of joy in knowing that you are well enough to pursue this sport. Every time I run now I think about how it would have been impossible 3-4 years ago and just enjoy every run as if it were a gift.

There is one other piece of advice that someone gave to me on the boat over to the NYC Marathon start that I will always carry with me. This man was 64yrs old and running his 10th marathon. He told me that there will be two sides of my brain fighting me the whole time I am running. The right side will say: stop, I hate this, I'm tired, I don't want to run, I want to stop, and the left side will say: I'm not listening to you, I'm strong, I can do this, I am fortunate enough to be able to run where so many can't, I have trained for this, I can do this. Usually in any race the right side of the brain tries to send negative messages to your body to tell it to stop, but let your left side win out, listen to it and know you can do it and you will be able to. At about mile 12 of the 26.2 mile marathon, my right side tried to tell me to stop, but my left side told me to keep going and I listened to it from mile 12 onward until the finish line. It was great to accomplish something I thought 3 year prior I would never be able to do!

Please, please feel free to contact me at any time to ask me anything about running or Lyme Disease or running with Lyme Disease as I'm always happy to help in any way I can.

Again, congratulations and best of luck to all of you! Well done.

All the best,

Angela Coulombe
