This coming Monday, April 16, 2012 Team LIFE members Lonnie Lenaburg (Eric’s uncle) and Mike McLean (Eric’s brother) will be competing in the 2012 Boston Marathon. They both qualified together (Lonnie in 3:25:02 and Mike in 3:05:28) for their age groups last fall at the Fox Valley Marathon in St. Charles, IL. Lonnie has been training very hard with his training buddy Clint Siemers who is pictured above. Mike has been recovering all year from a serious injury in January where he severely fractured his tibial plateau. He just began walking again about a month ago, and running lightly 2 weeks ago. He is still experiencing a lot of pain, but has recovered aggressively and draws a lot of his strength from Eric’s ongoing battle against leukemia. He will stop at nothing to finish. We want to wish them the very best of luck. Go get it guys!!
