250 miles

Happy Easter! It's been nine weeks since we started this thing. Craig got through his last day of chemo this week! And today I ran the final leg of 250 miles, 70 miles farther than I hoped to go.

During that time, you've helped us raise almost $3,000 for Craig's care!! We never expected that kind of response. The incredible outpouring of support is a testament to your love and generosity!

There's still time to donate. One way is to match my mile total dollar-for-mile, $250. Or choose what you think is best. Just click the "Donate" button at the top of this page, or send a check by clicking here. You also can buy a Craig T-shirt, with $5 of your purchase going to pay for his treatment.

Finally, for those of you in Cincinnati, there will be a fundraiser all day tomorrow, March 24, at Champion's Grille on Crookshank. Champion's will donate 10 percent of their proceeds from the entire day (they're open 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.) to Craig's care. There will be basket raffles, split-the-pot, T-shirt and rubberband sales, and general donations also will be accepted. Make it an extension of your holiday weekend! Get down there and have some fun!

Half marathon today

Got in 13.1 miles before lunch to wrap up our nine weeks -- and just in time. The Nike+ receiver on my iPod died 10.36 miles into the run, as you can see from the graph below. I guess it had all it could take!
