This might be my last email from my home computer, where this website and idea was hatched from scratch. Thank you all for logging on. If anything, I hope the blog inspired you to at least go out for a jog!
I’ve had a LOT of support and encouragement over the past 3 months. People constantly asking about my progress, giving me positive feedback about the website, and really just showing genuine interest in the whole project. I want to THANK ALL OF YOU for following me on this little adventure. Elliot – thanks for all those long (and EARLY) training runs! My parents, who helped with every facet of the run – spreading word about the website, fundraising, making sure I didn’t kill myself by overtraining. My sister Alex for taking photos and for helping design the site. And to everyone else… I’ve gotten very moving emails, not only from friends/family, but from other runners I’ve met on this journey and even from strangers that have stumbled into the Under311 world!!! Your comments/emails were very inspiring! THANK YOU!
To the short list of folks that didn’t donate (you didn’t have to) OR contact/email to wish me luck… I’m a little dissappointed. That said, there is still time for you to donate/email!!!
Enough about you folks. Now it’s all up to me! Been drinking a lot (Gatorade), eating a lot (pasta), listening to music (Rocky)! There’s 26.2 miles of empty road ahead to run in under 3:11! That’s always been the plan, and I’m sticking to it!!!
