I mentioned last week that I had sent out the letters asking friends and family of my father to contribute to my fundraising efforts. Well, the donations began to arrive via the Internet on Friday of last week and via the mailbox by Saturday. Since that time there has been a amazing outpouring of support on behalf of my father. I have been both humbled and overwhelmed by the generosity of so many people. As of today I have received donations from 26 people/families. Unbelievably these donations total $4096.20!

Many people have been including little cards and words of encouragement for me. More importantly they have been expressing how impressed they are by my father's perseverance, determination, and drive. I hope to continue to funnel this amazing energy and support into my training. As the race gets into the final hours and my body tries to quit I know my mind (and heart) will be lifted up by everyone's support. Thank you again to all of you for your encouragement and willingness to help me honor my father.
