I just wanted to say thanks to all of you for performing at such a high level and setting a standard that others will certainly try to imitate.
I received nothing but compliments on how well run and wonderful all of the aid stations were. Many people sought me out on Sunday to tell me how much they enjoyed the help they received during the run. Quite a few have already sent notes to the same effect.
I also received a huge number of comments about how well the course was marked, so that all of that crew deserves congratulations as well. As far as I know, only one person managed to wander off course -- and that was early -- and yes, he did step across a red ribbon!
I received an incredible number of compliments about what a good job I did, and I pointed out that it wasn't because of me but because of the people "below" me that any of that happened.
