I'm not running alone.

Whelp, today is the day I run the NYC marathon. You can follow me by going to the ING NYC Marathon’s site. My bib # is 33809. Also, I will be posting photos of the day’s events to my twitpic account.

It’ll be me taking each step, but so many have supported me and my cause. I feel like I’m running for a with a whole bunch of folks.

Annie, as always has been a saint. Since June I’ve either been running or recovering from a run every Saturday. On occasion I did milk my “recovering” excuse to watch football. Sorry, Annie.

Harper has been my training partner. I’ve pushed her hundreds of miles around the city of Muncie and she didn’t complain once.

Steph, Annie’s cousin, has helped me as I’ve nursed a sore knee the last month.

Larry Olson talked me into all of this. He’ll be running with me. Larry, I apologize in advance if I start to cuss at you during the race.

All of the people who donated to Team Conitnuum – especially, my mother-in-law Gloria, a cancer survivor, for inspiring me to support the cause. I’m honored to be running in honor of those who have been touched by cancer.

Matt Barhorst says:

Do they give a medal for being in 28,989th place?

Larry says:


Yes, the gave Kelsey a Gold medal actually — I was there to witness it. i wish we had video of all the women screaming his name as we ran through each borough. he was a rock star.


Kelsey says:

Matt, I stepped it up the last few feet so I could say with pride that I finished in the top 30K.

Outstanding post but I was wondering if you could write a litte more on this subject?
I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little bit more.
Appreciate it!
