On your mark… get set…train!

May 26, 2009

I have heard from many of you about your training, great job!   Julie and I are starting tomorrow with Jeff Galloway Training Program.  It will be fun to meet him in person tomorrow. 

Would like to announce that my Brother Steve Bateman is signed up to run with us at the MCM.  He signed up on April 1st, but stayed in the closet til he knew that he could run it.  He just did a 10k at a 8:30 minute pace!  I think he will be fine.


Mike and Holly Redwine have started their training.  Holly just ran over 5 miles for the first time.  I can’t wait to see you guys again!  Jen Brooks is running in my neighborhood rubbing it in my face that she beat me at our last 1/2 marathon. 

Brent and Samantha Crane are running all over Jacksonville.   I know that Jon VanDeusen played golf last week, that doesn’t count as exercise!  I have not spoken to my friend Dewayne in a few weeks, but i know that he will be ready!   Why is it that Brian Handly is going to France in August and the other three have decided to run a Marathon?  I am proud of my Brother -in-Law Kevin Voss that he is going to run with us.  Please share you stories of training, or if you would just like to make a sarcastic comment, please do!


If you need any information about the hotel or events surrounding the Marathon, please let me know (919)795-3971.


This is Memorial Day weekend.  It will have a new meaning to me.   One that hits close to my heart.  Take a moment and run or think about Capt Phil this Monday.

I think of him every day.  As members of Team Dykeman i want you to be proud of what we are doing.  On June 7, 2009 we are awarding the First Scholarship in his name.  It is going to a Graduating Senior Soccer player from his High School.   I couldn’t be prouder of all of you.  Thank you.
