As I posted earlier this summer, Louis Rodriguez is participating in the Run Across America, which began on Saturday, June 12th in California and ends on August 21st in NYC's Central Park. Once again, Agnes Oquendo is serving as crew. As part of their journey, they will once again be raising awareness about breast cancer (see the diaries of their 2001 run from SI to Miami for more information on this mission).
I had hoped to post Agnes' account of the race daily, but because of my work responsibilities and the lack of internet access that Agnes has faced while on the road, haven't been able to until now. Nevertheless (after getting approval from webmaster Rich Re), it was decided to post what I've gotten so far (there are some days which were skipped because of the above difficulties) -- right here on the forum -- so that all you race fans can catch up.
You can also check out the Race Across America website at http://www.runacrossamerica2004.com/. They are posting daily standings as well as photos daily (and there is also bio information on each entrant, including our own LR). Rich Re will post details on Lou and Agnes' homecoming on August 21st in a prominent place on the website. So look for more posts in this spot for these reports, I'll get them up as soon as I can!
