Dr. Sean Early PhD
On the second day the Aids Life Cycle last year, I was in a pretty serious crash. My handlebars snapped (saving my arm) but I got some new bars, got a brace for my messed up hand, and kept riding.
Turns out that the hand injury isn't going away as quickly as I had hoped, so THIS year is all about the LA Marathon and switching my fundraising over to LA's other SUPER amazing organization: Aids Project Los Angeles.
My exertion is a symbol of my commitment to do what I can to end the AIDS crisis, which remains all too real, and all too devastating for many it affects.

Don't forget - 50 bucks gets you a batch of cookies, my LA Peeps, and 150 gets you an awesome cooking-healthy-food-that-won't-disgust-you lesson!!
extra mileage? uhm...okay?
It turns out that it's sorta important-like to follow the route maps that we are given as "mentors" for our pace groups, lest we lead our team more or less straight up the hills of Glendale, CA, unnecessarily. For a bit more than 1/2 a mile.
Doesn't sound too bad until you add it onto the 14 we were doing on Saturday. Whoops/Sorry/MyBad/NewLeadershipNeeded
my pace group, the Dirty 9:30s, is pretty much the most amazing band of rogues I've had the pleasure to know recently.
i managed to make my left hip freak out by running on the sloped part of streets for a few too many miles (whoops - the things you learn when you run more than 10 miles a week...), but I'm pretty sure it'll hold up for this Saturday's 14 miler.
thanks SO very much for your support - it means the world to me, and even more to the client of APLA who receive life-saving support because of it.
Happy New Year!
they picked ME as the group mentor??
turns out that my pace group (the Dirty 9:30s) needed a mentor and I apparently was standing in the wrong place at the right time, and so it's me!
this past weekend we did a ten mile run, including about 3 miles of uphill work. Everyone in my group did super-well and we managed to finish just as the rain started to really come down.
it's a bit frustrating to not be doing a sport where I can keep up with the fast kids, but it's also a welcome opportunity to set some new goals and get to know some great folks!
