We'll see Iona if I survive.

Actually decided 1st mile for all active/retired, next 3 for wounded (got SEVERAL names) last and hardest for the fallen. I'll freely admit that there will be walking but it will not be in vain!!!

I'll report back to say I DID IT for THEM!

Thanks for returning my email. I am sure you could find a good bit of information/pics on the two soldiers I mentioned. Now you can put a face to the names given. Best of luck to you and thanks for supporting such a great cause.

Iona and madam, THANKS!!! I swear I was still smiling at the finish. It wasn't an awesome time but I really didn't care. And just thought this am, yesterday I did walk about .3 miles of it whcih the group with me said that totally counts as running the whole thing. The farthest I'd ever run without stopping was 3.1 ... I know that having real people to run for (and my sports jelly things) got me to the end!

Madam, I'll be replying to the emails I got with a couple of pics.

Thanks again!!!
