Hi. It's already been 13 day…
Hi. It's already been 13 days since the NYC Marathon, and now that I can successfully walk (and even run) again, I wanted to say thank you for supporting my run and the American Diabetes Association.

I had 2 goals going into my first marathon. First, I wanted to run under 4 hours, which I did (with only 81 seconds to spare) with a 3:58:39. There was a woman that Helen and I met this summer at a party upstate who said there was "no way" I could run even close to 4 hours. I thought a lot about her comment to keep me going in the last 6 miles when my body wanted to quit!

I also hoped that I could rally friends and family to raise some much needed money to fight diabetes. Together, we raised more than $2,800.00. Thanks so much for your support in making that happen!

I found the NYC Marathon to be a pretty special thing, from the Italian families in Brooklyn to the Hipsters in Williamsburg, the roaring crowds lining 1st Avenue in Manhattan, and the Harlem Gospel singer who got me re-focused at mile 21. They, along with you and your support, re-affirmed my belief that people are generally pretty damned good.

Thanks again, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

David

Leslie and Bruce,

Thanks for the donation to the American Diabetes Association for my run. I really appreciate it!

I must say that this is making the Canaan Olympic Pentathlon look easy!

I appreciate your support and look forward to waving to you on race day. My number is 34022 if you want to let me know where you will be.
