I did it! Sure, there's a lot I want to share about Marathon Day - the faces I saw, the sounds, what it's like to run 26.2, how it feels to cross the finish line, that uncontrollable urge to ask "what's next?" ...

I'll get a chance to share
that with you all soon enough.

For now, I want to thank the many, many people who made this accomplishment possible - and a very special thank you to the friendly faces I saw along the way and much appreciation to those to jumped in a ran a few steps with me.

I felt better than I exp
ected to along the way and as I crossed the Finish Line - 4:47:38 later. Notice my smile at mile 26.2 in this pic?

In fact, I feel pretty darn good today, too. I really couldn't as
k for anything more. Still, I'm glad I planned a couple of days off and a mini-vacation to the North Country to relax and celebrate.

Here are a few sna
pshots from the Finish Line.


  1. You're awesome. Congratulations. -- Dan

  2. Congratulations! We are so proud of you. What' next?

  3. Way to go T-Bird - we are very proud of you, Congrats on this fine accomplishment!


  4. Hooray!!! You did it. Not that i doubted it for a second. Granny reminded me how much Grandad would have enjoyed seeing you run. He ran long distances all the time and loved running. I guess it is in your genes. We are all very proud of you. Mom
