Glenn SAYS:
Dear Friends and Family, Tha…
Dear Friends and Family,
Thank you for donating to Clean Water Movement. Your generosity added to my joy of running, and seemed to magnify the improvement over last year’s Rails To Trails Marathon!
My official time is 4:00:30, which beats last year’s time on the same course by 17sec, which was my 'B' goal. The race started about 20 degrees colder than in 2011, yet the weather was glorious. Mary, my support crew, was smiling and cheering at nearly every aid station - Sweet! For the ‘middle’ 20 miles, I used the strategy of walking about 1 min every mile. First 12 miles was fun, next 4 slowing, next 4 working hard, last 4 mi grueling. Maybe I needed more LONG training runs in the weeks leading up to the race – But no moaning on ground after the finish this year, I was faster, I’m a year older, AND we raised $600+ for drilling wells for drinking water in impoverished, water-poor areas of the world. Thank you!

By the way, my formula for donation amount (i.e., amount contingent on actual performance) can't actually be implemented in the Crowdrise fundraising website yet. I did not meet my 'A' goal of 9-minute miles (about 3:56:00 total), but I thank you for your good wishes and generosity.
