Team Dykeman at the Myrtle Beach 1/2 Marathon

Hello Runners,

Julie, Rusty Sneeden, Angel Mercer, and Damon Yudichek all ran the Myrtle Beach !/2 Marathon on Saturday. We represented Team Dykeman very well. Damon was the first to cross the finish well under 2 hours. Way to go stud! Then myself, Julie and Rusty. Julie did awesome, she will be able to post even better times at the next race. I better watch out. My very special friend Angel Mercer wanted to run with us, she works out all the time but runs very little. Well, SHE DID IT. She completed the Half. This was her first. Awesome!

We had a small after party, where we ate Oysters and had Bloody Mary’s to Celebrate!

This Wednesday is the sign up day for the Marine Corp Marathon. I would recommend signing up on the first day. The race will fill up pretty quick. Please spread the word about Team Dykeman Runners. Recruit runners to join us.

Please don’t forget to Friend Team Dykeman on Facebook.

Send emails to the group on Wednesday day to let everyone know that you are signed up.

I am not a Marine, But i run for one!

Always Faithful!

Myrtle Beach half-Marathon…. tomorrow!

February 13, 2009

The Myrtle Beach 1/2 Marathon is tomorrow February 14th 2009. If your in the area please come and support our run. We need all of the support we can get; 13.1 miles is a long way. We run for Team Dykeman proudly. Tomorrow we have 9 runners participating.

I want to THANK everyone for their support for the Scholarship. We have had a good start, but we are not finished. To date we have raised $ 5,800 and our efforts, with all of your help, continue. In the Fall, we will be awarding our first scholarship in Captain Phil’s name.

We are excited to carry the name of Captain Philip Dykeman USMC who was killed in action (Iraq) on June 26, 2008. Only 8 months ago. He is survived by his wife and three children. ( age 10 and twins age 6) — MY children are the same age.

A special Thank You to Rusty Sneeden. He has taken it upon himself to be active in supporting Team Dykeman. Not only is he running in the Race Saturday morning, but he is spreading the word about the scholarship. Rusty, you truly are a good friend and a Great Person.

We are not Marines, but we run for one!
Always Faithful
