Hello to my amazingly genero…
Hello to my amazingly generous donors! Well, we did it again, folks. For the second straight year you helped me reach a rather lofty fundraising goal and raise an incredible amount of money for a very worthy cause...helping victims of spinal cord injury. The $8,207 was $707 past my target and good enough, for the second straight year, to make my campaign #1 for Team Journey Forward! Once again, I'm humbled by your kindness and so proud to call you all friends.

As for the race...well, it was really hot and that made for a very long day! I started feeling the affects of the heat as early as mile 5 but things remained fairly uneventful through mile 10. Then I was sick (3 times) over the course of the next 6 miles, somehow recovered and ran strong during the hardest part of the course (the famed Newton Hills...miles 17-22) and then limped home with a screaming left foot for the final 4-5. When the dust settled, my time (4:15:51) was only about 5 minutes slower than last year, so I'll take it and be grateful that the experience was somehow, still amazing and fun in it's own warped way.

Six days later, I'm almost fully recovered, my only remaining wound being a stubborn blister on my left heal. Otherwise, I'm in the pink and should be returning to training soon.

I hope that you're all doing well and, again, thank you so much for supporting my fundraising efforts for Journey Forward. It means a lot to me so I'm truly grateful to you all.
