WOW! I'm speachless. Yes, the tall, skinny guy with the microphone can be speachless.
We had a great race this year, full of blistering times on the new coarse. When I saw the 10k times coming across this morning, I wondered if I had something wrong with the distances. Then I saw the accurate GPS reading on the course and was put back in my place. Congratulations to all that finished all three events.
Thank you so much for your help, donations, and support this year. I think the race went really well, but I'm just the tall, skinny guy that is pretty optimistic and outspoken. I want to hear what everyone else thought. Please drop me an email, post to our BLOG or give me a call. You have me contact information in your race bag. The honest and candid feedback we get from you, though it may hurt my pride sometimes, is what makes the race better. This is a race we organize for you the runner/walker. We want to improve it for you. So, send those firery darts, and the nice notes as well. Let us know what was good, and what wasn't so good.
Thanks again to all of our sponsors. Please visit our sponsors and let them know that you loved the race - because I'm sure you did. Our sponsors this year made it possible for most of your registrations fees to go directly to Heart Services and we're going to have quite the check to hand over to them - you know one of those big ones on cardboard. Thanks to you for making a difference in the community and saying "Yes, I can make a difference and I care about what happens in my community!"
Look for your 2008 results at the Stride Racing Website! I'll have them posted up on the blog later today. They'll also be on our awesome timing guys' (STRIDE RACING) website. You should see some results in tomorrow's Standard Examiner as well.
Thanks again for a great race this year. Look for us in the RED next year!
