Running for Life

RAA-Route-Jul-12-1024x328

The LIFE-Runners A-Cross the Country Relay blazed a trail through Illinois and yesterday entered St. Louis.  Rain and cool temp caused only the most die-hard of runners to zip through the city streets.  It’s pretty exciting stuff!

Here are the Illinois LIFE Runners – reaching higher and running farther…

As the relay made its way to the other side of Illinois the weather took a sharp turn.

Watch this short series of video clips that Jeff Pauls took as the team courageously finished out Illinois and handed off to Missouri.

Then here are pictures of St. Louis LIFE Runners digging deep to blaze their trail for the Relay.

As the Relay makes its way to Mid-MO tomorrow…excitement continues to build.  For  more info about the relay or LIFE Runners go to http://www.liferunners.org or visit the National LIFE Runners Facebook page for updates and more great pictures/videos.

Before I leave you today…I have to share this picture – LIFE Runner drives from Louisianna to St. Joseph, MO to run 20 miles of the Relay.

    • Hi Sarah – The warmer temps are a welcome relief here too. Just finished 3 days of running with the LIFE Runner relay. Tired, sore and dusty but so glad I was able to do it. I am going to write about it today. I have a 9 mile long run this weekend too. It looks like you are in upper miles too. Keep pluggin away.
