LoziLu is national women's fun 5k trail mud run filled with exhilarating obstacles.  Their mission is to 1.) spread happiness, health and fitness throughout the world by leveraging the familial influence of women, and 2.) to support leukemia & lymphoma research to find a cure for blood cancers while helping cancer patients live happier lives.  It is led by two athletically minded couples aiming to show the world how fitness is both fun and rewarding. Their romantic relationships are rooted in fitness; the University of Wisconsin Triathlon Team played matchmaker for them both, and that is also where they met Eric's older brother Mike.  Lozilu donates a portion of each race towards the L.I.F.E. organization.  Find one near you by visiting their website at http://www.lozilu.com/
