I just wanted to give you a quick update on the marathon & the fundraiser. Good news & bad news I'm afraid.
Good news first: I finished & together we raised right around $7000.00 for 2K+ (http://www.2kplus.org.uk/).
Bad news: I finished in 4 hours & 7 minutes. My goal was 3 hours & 45 minutes. In other words I bonked (runner's speak for crashing & burning) starting at about mile 12 for some reason I started cramping up & feeling light headed. Oh well, I finished & want to run many more.
I was rested & trained & fueled up but things didn't go my way. I was even properly motivated having watched "Without Limits" a great running movie last night. "Without Limits" features our Indy friend Ashley Johnson playing an English runner who wins the bronze medal in the Munich Olympics 5k. So if you see Ashley congratulate him on his Olympic big screen performance.
Thanks very much to all of you who supported me & 2K+ in this endeavor.
I also got to see our wonderful & supportive friends the Madisons & the Yeagers while I was running. & special thanks to my lovely wife MaryBeth for cheering me on & keeping me fueled up on the road.
