What is 55 by 55 ???
That's my crazy/nutty impossible dream 2015.
When last year ended, I had just completed my 41st marathon/ultra marathon. I thought, what seems totally impossible for 2015? What about completing my 55th marathon by my birthday on July 20th. That would mean completing fourteen marathons or ultras in 7 1/2 months!!! No way!!!! That would be impossible!!!!
Hmm.......,and raise $55,000 in 2015 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society!
Wait, what about a bunch of the runs being 50 miles, or maybe another 100k!
I have kept this crazy dream private because I wanted to get a head start.
42. The Crystal Springs Marathon......1-11-15 completed
43. The Redding Marathon ( 1-11-15) completed......wet, cold, and painful. 4 hrs 10 minutes.
44 The Montara Mountain Marathon. 2-21-15.....completed ( horrid neuropathy...6 1/2 hrs).
45. The Napa Valley Marathon. 3-1-2015. completed. (3 hrs 51 minutes).
46. The Canyon Meadows Ultra. 3-22-2015. completed
47. The American River 50 mile trail run. 4-4-2015 completed. 10 hrs 31 min
48. The Mokelumne River 50 Miler. April 18,2015. Completed 38 miles. 10hr 45 min

Now, what should I do? Hmm!!
Kick it up a notch and make it even more impossible!!!!
This weekend......( April 18th )
The Mokelumne River 50 miler
Over 10,000 feet of hill climbing
80 degree weather
Extremely difficult terrain
Add......I do not even want to walk right now nor wiggle a toe.
Waldenstom's Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma is Painful!!!!
But, I can't let it stop me.
I feel nasty pain right now as I type this, and I am signed up for pure insanity this weekend. Every run is an act of faith. I give it to God and ask
him to keep me safe and give me strength.
My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him. (NIV)
