From the President’s Console: October 2000

Posted October 2000


26.2 miles of the most grueling physical challenge I’ve ever undertaken. But, I made it!

This past weekend I completed (note I didn’t use the word competed) in the Columbus Marathon. It took me a little over 5 hours and was both the most excruciating and exhilarating thing I’ve done in quite a while. More motivating though were the many people, customers included, that I came into contact with through the course of my summer/fall training. Everyone had encouraging words and some of you even shared tips and experiences from your own marathoning lives. I never dreamed so many people had done this. Or so few. I finished 3099 out of approximately 3500. And 500 others didn’t finish.
