Friends –

This is a last thank you to the 95 of you who responded to my barrage of emails over the last six weeks to contribute to the Boston Medical Center. I know that all of you are asked early and often to contribute to your friends’ and colleagues’ causes, and I really appreciate your stepping up for this one. Of the 85 runners for the BMC team, only one group, the group supporting my friend Joe Craven’s family, contributed more money than the $18,000 you gave.

If you were here in Boston last week, you know that Marathon Monday was chilly, wet, and windy – an interesting weather day after an interesting winter for training. But as usual, Boston was at its best – the crowds were loud (I gather that in some cities the crowds are large but kind of dead), the huge number of volunteers did an amazing job keeping the 30,000 of us hydrated every mile or so, and the other runners were an inspiration. And we were thankful for the extraordinary security operation that made it a safe day for all of us.
On a personal note, I finished in 4:02 – no records, but an even pace that was everything I had that day. And coming across the Finish to have cheering volunteers wrap you in a cape, hand you a water and a protein shake, and put the medal around your neck is hard to beat!

So once again, thank you for your support -- and enjoy the Spring!

Jack.
