    Good luck on this effort.  I will have to take some time and read up on what you have been doing.  Are you going to be in Akron doing that marathon in 2010?  I did notice you ran it last year.  It caught my eye because that is the one I am gearing up for since it will be my first.  I will be going back to my hometown to run in it, so I am pretty psyched!

     

    Keep it up!

    Good luck on your journey as well.  I have passed your link along to some friends and they will be keeping up as well.  If you decide to run in Akron, let me know.  I had seen that you might be needing a place to stay.  I have quite a few people I know there and a few might be willing to help out if asked (most of them are friends from church that host people at times anyway).  We will be at my inlaws - but with 4 kids there, that is too much for them to handle.

     

    Anyway, keep it up and I look forward to hearing how things go for you.

     

    Later... Eric

    Don't feel bad... I am just getting back online since not checking in for a while - so I never noticed.  Anyway, glad to hear you got the first one done.  Look for my FR from FB in the near future.  I am getting offline for the night so I will not be logging back in.

    Great Work Dana,

     

    You set an ambitious goal for an excellent cause.  You have done great so far and are motivation for others.

     

    Enjoy the journey and see where it takes you.
