I did it! I survived my first marathon! I even beat my self-imposed goal time by four minutes, crossing the finish line in 4 hours and 56 minutes. I couldn't have done it without your support, and I had you all in my thoughts throughout the race, pushing myself forward to make you all proud.
Your support means the world to me, but it also means a world of difference to the people who benefit from all the work that the American Red Cross does. Your money is going to a great cause, as thousands of people every week seek aid from the Red Cross both in times of disaster and in times of just needing a little help to get by. Please give yourselves a big pat on the back for being extra awesome and generous.
Once again, you are all amazing, fantastic people and I appreciate your support and generosity. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you.
