Earlier this afternoon Mike Mc Bride and I crossed the finish line at the Boston marathon , making us the first registered runners with documented severe lung disease, ever to do so!
Unfortunately, I started to flare-up pretty bad during the last two miles of the race and within 5 minutes of crossing the finish line, was whisked away to the hospital where I’m supposedly in serious , but condition. This post was sent out courtesy of the wonderful Social Services personnel at Boston Mass General hospital. I ‘ll write a complete race report in about a week when I return to California, but let me just say this..The Boston marathon experience is everything people claim it is….and more!!
Thanks everyone for your support!
