Friends and Family, I hope …
Friends and Family,

I hope you had a great week and are in the midst of a better weekend!

One more note of THANKS for supporting my GFC / Hole in the Wall Gang Hospital Outreach Program Boston Marathon run.

Of the 6 Boston Marathons I've completed, this was my worst finishing time (5:16), however, it was my most satisfying Boston Marathon completion.

As the temps reached 87 degrees (or warmer in-land by some reports), I must admit, for the first time in any of my Boston Marathon runs, I had thoughts of bailing out between miles 9-13, the warmest part of the day.

I must also admit, although I may have had those fleeting thoughts, I also thought of the commitment you had made to the Charity. There was no way I was going to allow your hard earned money and generous donations to be connected with an incomplete finish. You were the ultimate motivator.

The fans along the course cheering, a stop to purchase cold Gatorade at a Mobil station in Wellesley and a "Food Truck" on Heartbreak Hill(the water / Gatorade handed out along the course got super warm), as well as, thoughts of your support of the charity carried me the rest of the way to the finish line.

Once I reached mile 15 there was no turning back and I had all the motivation I needed to manage the remainder of the run.

I kept "Right on Hereford, Left on Boylston. . . . Right on Hereford, Left on Boylston . . . Right on Hereford, Left on Boylston . . ." running thru my head and those two turns never felt any better when they became real-time!

As of today, I feel fully recovered and may actually head out for a run (like a mile or two!!).

Together, we raised over $5,000 and almost $80,000 for the GFC Team. That means a full-year of the Hospital Outreach Program will be funded!

You should feel good that you did something great for some people we don't even know and your generosity will keep on giving for the entire year ahead.

Thanks again and I hope you have a great weekend!

If there's something I can do for you, please don't hesitate to reach out.

Friends and Family Well, he…
Friends and Family

Well, here we are, the day before the Marathon!

THANK YOU so much for your donation to help complete my part of our team's challenge to fund the Hole In the Wall Gang Hospital Outreach Program. Together, we've raised over $75,000, which will fund one whole year of the program!! I truly appreciate you taking the time to make a donation.

If you haven't seen it already, here is a short video that will give you further insight into the program you so generously supported:

The training runs are done. The hydration process has begun. 26.2 miles is the last piece of the puzzle.

I'm looking forward to the run tomorrow (and an ice cold beer after!) and will utilize your support as a motivator during some of the potentially challenging parts of the day.

Thanks one more time for your support - you've contributed to help bring joy and laughter to others we may not even know - which is always something honorable.

You can follow thru run at I'll be wearing Bib #26094.

Have the best day!
