October 9, 2012: An update from Joshua:

Wow… what a weekend!  I set forth a while back with 2 main goals for this weekend:

1. Do better than my 2011 time of 3:51:00 and finish under 3:45:00

2. More importantly, raise $2,000 for a great organization: Defending The Blue Line (DTBL)

I’m proud to say that both goals were met and smashed!  I ended up with a 3:43:31 time and we raised just under $5,000 for DTBL!!!!  This is absolutely unbelievable and I have been humbled by the response.  These funds will have a direct and immediate impact in helping numerous kids participate and enjoy the 2012-13 hockey season.  I cannot thank you enough for the support!  For those of you that were on the course, it was a major boost to see you as I was really struggling along Summit Ave in the final couple of miles.  It was also great to see such a fun crowd at the post-race party with friends and family.  Thank you for making this such a memorable day and event!
