Robert Manon (MM6700, DA431, HF3646) – Many of us were at Revel Mt Charleston, I was signed up for the marathon but decided to drop to the half because of a pain that has been bugging me since the Citrus Heritage Half on January 8th. I hated not running the marathon but it was the smart decision.

Congratulations to everyone!
