    T Bone !

    Seems a long time ago since I met you at registration in Tokyo at the end of last February and I’ve followed your exploits on and off ever since. I hope you don’t get down after the last one in Melbourne because your year has been one hell of an experience. Another idea. Another challenge will come your way. No doubt about that !

    I ran Montreal but you’re a bit quicker than me so we didn’t meet up. If you recall I’m looking to do the official marathon of every Olympic Host City before London 2012 so having done 20 out of the 22 (Beijing was my last one on 24th October), I’ve just Sydney on 18th September then your home city of Melbourne on 9th October 2011 left to do. Very appropriate because I’m 56 in January and Melbourne Olympics were in 1956 ! Maybe we’ll meet up then !

    Keep up the good work and enjoy your final run in 2010 then Run Like Crazy in 2011 and beyond.

    All The Very Best,

    Andrew Ronnan,
    Whalley, Lancashire, UK.

    You have achieved something epic, and this journey you have undertaking has not only you on it now, but every friend you know – and a million you don’t. Even though you are nearing the ‘finish line’ (pardon the pun), you are changing people.. And i can only thank you for this.
    I know you will spend the next few days travelling – and being extremely busy with your adventure, but i appreciate the time you have taken in reading this message.
    My name is Kasey, I am 29 yr old gal, living/working (as an emergency nurse) in Melbourne town – but grew up in rural NSW on a farm with my close family. A few months ago my 36 yr old brother passed away from a short and painful battle with Motor neuron disease. Because of this I decided to become someone that never took everyday life for granted, and have started stepping out of the comfort zone – and ‘i can’t’ cannot be used in my vocabulary – my new mantra – for my brother is “I AM ABLE’. This is all over my apartment to motivate me, and i use it to answer questions and challenges that pop up in my life. Since i have entered and competed in several triathlons and running events.
    So today when I read your blog about your final run in Melbourne and would stay until the last person finished – I thought, maybe me, maybe I can do this -because “I am able”.
    I am hoping the 500 cap hasn’t been reached yet – as I go to enter. And I am looking forward in witnessing your journey concluding – to what no doubt will be another one starting.
    Thank you again for being an everyday person who has done something extraordinary.
    Kasey Vandermeer

    I remember you Andrew!! Great to hear from you and truly wonderful to hear that you’re still going so strong. We’ll have to run Melbourne together next year! Keep on trucking – until we meet again!

    Gee Kasey, what a sincere and lovely posting to add to my site! I really appreciate you taking the time to share your story with me, as it’s those little moments that have buoyed me through my entire adventure. Sitting in Miami airport right now, it’s pretty much exactly what I needed to read with another 30 hours of flying ahead of me!

    It has been an amazing year and I like to think I grabbed onto life as much as humanly possible.. I just hope I keep growing as a result of my actions..

    We’ve got nearly 300 signed up, so you have plenty of space to jump onboard. I’m honored that you will make the effort to run with me. I will run until everyone is done, though you can bet on me running pretty slow for this one.. I’m just going to enjoy it.

    See you on the 27th! Cheers, TB
