Thank You

I’d like to think I was raised pretty well.  I was taught to mind my P’s and Q’s, put the toilet seat down, use my best judgement when facing a difficult decision, and maybe most importantly, say please and thank you.

I am not about to pull out my list and give my “I’d like to thank God for none of this would be possible speech,” but I do want to take a minute to say thanks.

Almost 1 year ago to the day I started this blog as a way to document my life as I trained for IMLOU.  I think it’s safe to say that it would have been damn near impossible to continue the training regimen without the support of all my family and countless friends.  The gamut ranged from my wife to my dentist and even the guy I get coffee from in the morning.  The outpouring of love and well wishes has been absolutely overwhelming and I am humbled.  I feel extremely blessed to have so many people in my corner.  The list is too long to thank everyone by name here, but I hope to extend my gratitue to everyone individually at some point down the line here.

Former British Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli stated ever so eloquently:

“I feel a very unusual sensation – if it is not indigestion, I think it must be gratitude.”

Not sure there’s anything else more to be said.  Thank you and have a good night.
