I just wanted to thank you all for the scads of volunteers who cheered us onas we walked yesterday. I had trained for months for the half marathon buthad been sick the last week and started the morning not sure if I should even try to walk it. By mile 11 I was exhausted and we rounded the corner andthere was another group of folks cheering us on. I was a bit choked up honestly because I was sort of ready to quit. In the end I finished in lesstime than I expected.

Thanks for all the effort you put into the marathon. It was very much 
appreciated by those of us who participated in it.
