Team FARA Blog

Team FARA members are running, walking, biking and swimming for FA research around the world.

While they are geographically dispersed, Team FARA is united with the same goal: to draw attention to FA through acts of physical endurance and to support the advancement of FA research towards treatments and a cure for FA.


We made it to Oceanside, unloaded the bikes onto our hotel rooms and  
went to dinner as a team.

Tomorrow the crew will finalize all the wiring and signage for all  
vehicles and have them ready for inspection at 5pm. Meanwhile the  
riders will go on a maintenance ride to make sure everything is  
working properly after the trip down.

Still Driving

Almost to Oceanside! It will have been an 11 hour drive by the time we
get there. The RV is very packed so we don't want it to go faster than
55mph. That made for a long day!

We are on our way to Oceanside!

We are on our way to Oceanside! We had overwhelming support at Nugget this morning as you can see from the photo below! I told the crowd that when I was first diagnosed with FA my family and I were scared, we did not know what the future would hold. So it means the world to us to have their support. The same goes for YOU, thank you for reading.

Now we are on the road with 8 people in the RV and 6 people between the two vans. We will meet Felicia, Mary and Mike A. in Oceanside this afternoon.


We are leaving in the morning.  It's hard to believe this is actually happening!

Up at 430, leave the house by 545, Breakfast and sendoff at Nugget with friends, family and supporters (pictures, I promise).  Then we are off on a 9 hour drive down to Oceanside for the final preparations for the race!

Mike M and I set up our phones to be able to post to the blog so you may see some shorter posts and there may be a little bit of a trial period as we try out the new posting method.

One last thing before I attempt to calm down and get some sleep...I just checked the analytics for this blog and today we got more hits than ever in one day (190), granted this blog is young but the point is that we want that number to keep going up!  We are not pushing donations as much with this race, more than money we want people to hear about the cause and this crazy adventure.  This is an opportunity to help the cause without writing a check.  So please take this opportunity and instead of reaching into your wallet reach into your address book and send this link along to as many people as you think might find it interesting.  Lets send the hit count through the roof!  I am setting our team goal (you are part of the team) at 1,000 hits in one day.  That seems a little high but lets think big!  I will try to keep you posted periodically on the hit count and I promise to try to keep the blog exciting, entertaining and up to date.

Good Night.


Bob and Steve are getting the vans ready

while Mike M and Mike G get all the bike gear together.

I think we may just pull this off.
