Congratulations Dave

A big round of applause for my best friend David Folwell, who just finished the Marine Corps Marathon out in Washington, D.C. in 4 hours and 4 minutes. Dave managed to raise $4,535 to donate to the Wounded Warriors charity, and they need every penny of it. Many people that read this blog donated to this cause, and Dave and I both want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

It's things like this, donating the time and pain towards running yourself to near death for a cause, or sending a check to a man whom you've never met for a cause you believe in, that makes serving and fighting for your country worth every second. With that said, thank you Dave.
