Mike Sheehy Attempts World Record

Mike Sheehy, a KT Tape advocate and all-around good guy, is at it again. He runs long distances for a good cause--raising awareness and money for cancer research. We last caught up with Sheehy after he spent 17 days running 500 miles across two states from San Diego to Phoenix! He ran for the Cures Rock Foundation which raises money and awareness for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  KT Tape was there every step of the amazingly long way, helping his aching Achilles tendinitis. Now, Sheehy is set to do something big again.  With the support of LLS's Team In Training,  He is attempting a Guinness World Record of the most miles run in seven consecutive days. Here is an excerpt from his blog: "At noon, on 30 May 2010,  I will begin my epic adventure to break the current record of 351 miles. I'll be utilizing the last 13 miles of the San Diego Rock n' Roll Marathon course between Fashion Valley (mile marker 13) and Sea World (mile marker 26)." Sheehy is accepting donations through his site which directly benefits the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Sheehy is driven to help raise money and run for those affected by cancer. His answers on why he set this goal: "Over the years, I've learned that cancer doesn't discriminate and can impact any of our lives at any moment. Someone will be diagnosed with a blood cancer every four minutes and someone will die from blood cancer every 10 minutes.  Sadly, during my seven days of running, approximately 1,000 people in the US will die from blood cancer. This is not okay!" KT Tape will once again be there every step of the way for Sheehy's incredible journey and important cause. KT Tape is a proud supporter of LLS's Team in Training, and will also be at the San Diego Rock n'Roll Marathon to cheer on all the competitors and welcome him home! Good luck Mike!
