September 29, 2010

Hello Everybody,

Wanted to check in to see how everyone was doing. I am going to Fulton NY to run the Century Marathon October 10th,THEN running the City of Oaks Marathon November 7th. What am I thinking!?! I am as ready as I will ever be. What races are you running? What is going on in your life?

Rick Roebuck competed in a Triathlon last weekend in Atlanta! How did you do? How big was the race?

This year I have been lucky enough to train with Steve Nolan and Bob “Bibby” Moore. They have kept me going. I just hang back let them set the pace and listen to them talk. Then the run is over. Thanks guys!

I want to Thank everyone for their support. Especially my wife Julie, without her I would not have started Team Dykeman.

Please respond and let us know what you are up to.

Remember I am not a Marine, I run for one!

Always Faithful,

Cousin Andrew Bateman
