Well the One Man Marathon for One Fund Boston was run today and was a smashing success!

First off I must thank my awesome wife Deb - this was her idea to start with and even though she took her role as Race Director perhaps a little too seriously at times ;-) in truth the success of this is due to her - both in getting the word out and in all the support logistics leading up to and during the race. Thanks to her all I had to do was show up and run.

Thanks, too, for all the support along the course today - lots of cheers and supporting honks coming from cars, church bells ringing, and family who came to Grafton.

And of course to all of you who donated to this cause. I again just continue to be humbled and amazed how this idea seemed to really resonate with so many people and moved you all to donate. I can not tell you how many donors actually thanked me for giving them the opportunity to contribute. That just really moved me from day one. It also certainly helped me along the route today knowing that while I started off doing this for me and a need to respond to the tragedy it turned into a way to act for over 100 people who it turns out also needed to respond.

Thank you all so very much!

BOSTON STRONG!

Hello again everyone. A quick update to again recognize just how incredible the response has been to this (what was thought to be) little endeavor. We are up over $2500 raised thus far and responses keep coming. Really, really touched by the outpouring of support.

Thank you again to each and everyone who has donated, shared the posting via Facebook and other social media, forwarded this to other contacts, and fed me with inspiration.

I completed my longest pre-marathon training run this weekend and it felt like a (relative) breeze as I thought throughout of all support received since launching this campaign.

BOSTON STRONG!

Wow - just amazed at the response. Surpassed my goal in less than 24 hours! Truly grateful and humbled by so many people being so generous. Seems only appropriate having powered through that wall to set a new goal...

Greetings... As most of you know, The Boston Marathon has long been a very special event to me and my family. Having been fortunate enough to qualify for and run it 7 times, the events of this year have been extremely painful to bear. I can't help but feel deeply for all the spectators who were directly affected, just for being there to cheer loved ones, and think about how many times my family has been doing just the same for me. Call it luck that participating in this year's race wasn't in my plans and we were not there.

In a show of support, on Saturday, May 11, 2013 (exactly 26 days since this year's Boston Marathon), I will be running a full marathon, 26.2 miles in a "One Man Marathon" around my town of Grafton, MA, to raise money for One Fund Boston, the official fund established to support the victims. The route will be a series of 3-5 mile loops out from our house if anyone would like to join in for any part.

I would greatly appreciate any monetary support you can give, $5, $10, maybe even $26.20. All the donations will go to One Fund Boston, which has been set up to help provide victims with financial support for their lengthy recovery, which may include prosthetic limbs, rehabilitation and psychological counseling.

Thank you for taking the time to look at this page and thank you for your support.

BOSTON STRONG!!
