I'm so honored to be running to raise money for Adrenal Insufficiency United! AIU's main focus is to get emergency care protocols and medications for the treatment of adrenal crisis on all emergency care vehicles nationwide.
The proceeds earned by this run will benefit Adrenal Insufficiency United members to attend the IAFC Fire-Rescue International Conference in Denver, Colorado, August 1-4, 2012, where over 10,000 EMS personnel will be attending. (Any extra funds earned will go towards other AI awareness conferences). AUI will help educate emergency responders about what to do during an adrenal crisis. This issue is near and dear to my heart, I've written about it multiple times over the last five years I've been writing this blog.

My training is basically done. I'm mostly packed for my Sunday departure. My backpack for the race is generally packed as well. I keep taking things out of it so it's not too heavy.

Sometimes Addison's is a pain in the backpack.
Questions are rolling in about where race info will be posted. Here are the answers:
