Dude, you are freaking awesome! Putting me over the top in style. Many thanks -- if nothing else, this whole Ironman thing will give me hours of conversation for our long runs together. Thanks again -- your support reminds me that I have a lot of folks pulling for my success, which feels great! See you soon,

Hello again,

I wanted to take a minute and let you all know just how much your support meant to me throughout the process. Marathon Monday was a magical day, an experience that will forever be one of my most treasured.

Because of generous supporters like you, we raised almost $800,000.00 as a team and I raised over $15,000.00. To have spent so much time with the survivors and to see how brave and strong they are was inspiring. We will forever be connected and remain friends, such a strong bond now exists.

As I ran, I had aches and pains, it was hot and the hills were relentless. I wanted you to know I smiled, for almost the entire race. The small challenges were overshadowed by the inspiration and support. It was incredible, I hope you knew you were there with me. At mile 23 I came upon Team Hoyt, if you know their story you know I was immediately a blubbering mess. If you don't, please look them up, they are they epitome of Boston Strong. They were walking, Dick was struggling (he is 74). I walked up to him and said "Dick, I know today is tough. I also know this is your last Boston Marathon. I want you to know that I have many more races in me, because of you." He thanked me and I walked to the finish line with him and his team. It was emotional and beautiful, certainly one of many highlights.

The day after finishing (the entire team finished!) Marathon Sports was engraving medals. It allowed you to have your name and time engraved on the back. Mine now reads "Tammy Knight-Gibbons and under time reads "magical".

I found out that our entire team utilized not one dollar of your donations to coordinate everything. 100% of money collected by Crowdrise with the exception of their fees, went to the survivors and the victims' families. Our team was put together with love and donations from sponsors and volunteers.

It was magical. Thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and on behalf of all those you have helped, they would like to thank you as well.

Love,
Tammy Knight-Gibbons
