Life Without Lupus - Wheels for a Life without Lupus

Thursday, October 9, 2008

This morning's ride was a smorgasbord of fast spinning, heavy-duty sprinting and some steady heart rate training. Quite a mix, but with some light rain, quiet roads and the Rascal Flatts in my earphones, it was a super morning. On Tuesday night, I went to the Lupus Scientific conference and chatted up some of the new's remarkable how much progress they're making with new lupus-specific drug treatments. The dollars going toward research are finally making real headway - now, if we could get the country's National Institute of Health (the NIH) to increase their funding for all medical research, we'd get somewhere. With this wacky economy, two wars and bailouts, I don't see much of that happening, Obama or McCain. Dr. Shlomchik, a brilliant leader from the Yale School of Medicine told me something that knocked me out: one AIG bailout would fund the NIH for 3 years! This Ride is making real progress. People are intrigued, and we're building good buzz. More to come.

Keep cranking, Chris. Looking forward to the event. Not sure how you survive on little sleep and early rides. Very special.

Ride on...
