I did it! I turned 50 and completed my very first marathon on 10/17/10 in Des Moines, IA.. The weather was perfect and it was a very memorable day.
26.2 miles is a long way. My official time was 4:04:54.
I’d like to thank all of the people that provided moral support, advice, and encouragement…. Believe me, it helped.
A very special thank you to the following sponsors that “ran” the marathon with me ~ together we raised a total of $813.40.
Billy and Kathy Bryant
CHAMPPS Americana Restaurant
Larry and Donna Bryant
Kathy and Jodi Bermel
Nancy and Jerry Reese
Add this to the $9689.69 that we raised from the BKB Memorial Golf Celebration in September, and it is my honor to present to
Mercy N.I.C.U. a check for $10,503.09 for the year of 2010.
THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!
