Dear Family and Friends: …
Dear Family and Friends:

As I was running on Sunday, I was thinking of my effort for the library and came to the realization that running a marathon is like reading a novel - not a novel that is a page turner, but rather the type that you get caught up in quickly at first, but midway through, you start to slow down and trudge along. Eventually you finish it and you are so glad that you completed it.

I wanted to let you all know that I successfully completed the ING New York City Marathon and am delighted that you were all part of it.

Thanks again for your support and best wishes always,

Ed Gold

Dear Family and Friends,
I just completed my last run (a two miler) before tomorrow's marathon and a couple of thoughts came to mind. One was how very lucky I am to be able to train for and to run a marathon. And the second, was how very fortunate I have been to have your support during my 2012 and or 2013 effort for the Montclair Public Library.
As I run tomorrow I will again be thinking of all you and that will help me through the day.
Thanks again and my best wish always,
Ed (Bib# 22434)"

Epilogue Sunday, November 1…
Epilogue

Sunday, November 18, was beautiful autumn day in Philadelphia with a temperature range of 38 to 52 degrees. Perfect for my first marathon.
The city of "Brotherly Love" opened its arms and roads to the runners
from the canceled New York City Marathon. Half of the entry fee charged to the NYC marathon runners was donated to help with relief efforts associated with Hurricane Sandy.
The race began at 7:00am. The first 22 miles were going quite well with a little fatigue in my quads just setting in. Mile 23 and 24 were my most challenging and I had to walk/run for a little while. I picked up my pace a bit for mile 25 and and was able to run across the 26.2mile finish line with a time of 3 hrs. 52 min. and 23 sec.
I learned a lot about running during my months of training and a lot from my first marathon experience. I also got a lot from all of you.
Knowing that all of you value the importance of the public library system whether it be Montclair's or that of another community means so much. I appreciate all of your support, thoughtfulness, and generosity; and once again say thank you. Next year, in New York City!

My best wishes always,
Ed

A very special thanks to all…
A very special thanks to all of you for your support in my effort for the Montclair Public Library. I had hoped to raise not only funds for the library, but also to raise the level of awareness of the library and the wonderful resource that it is for our community. I know that many of you spent hours there during the past two weeks while many of us were without power.
Through your contributions, the Montclair Public Library Fondation will receive nearly $9,000. ( and I didn't even run). It is through generosity like yours that enables the Montclair Public Library to continue to be the valuable asset in our community that it is. For the record, I will be running in the Philadelphia marathon this Sunday, November 18.
Many thanks again and my best wihses to all of you for very Happy Thanksgiving,
Ed

I am very excited to know that we will be in the same corral. I hope you will share some of your marathon experiences to help me make it to the finish line. I am very excited.
Thanks again and I will see you on Sunday.
