        Hey Dave, Congratulations on your wonderful accomplishment!! I hear there's a pretty cool marathon in NJ that starts in Long Branch (I think) next April and another one in Long Island in May. I'm not sure if I can make it to the Jersey one, but if you run in the Long Island one, then I'll see you there! Great job again!!! -A

          Dave - congratulations - the first one is always very special. I'm really pleased that you have an appetite to return for more races in 2008 - it will just get better and better I assure you (this is from a man who did not start running until I was 41 years old)! Neil UK Smile
