Steve Nolan ran Ebenezer Church Road with me, Paul Groff ran all of Umstead Park. At the end of the race Rusty Sneeden and his family were there to support me.

On Sunday Andrew participated in the first of two marathons he has scheduled. Yesterday he ran the Century Marathon in Fulton, NY. Twenty-seven days from today he will lace up his running shoes for the City of Oaks Marathon in his home town of Raleigh, NC. Sunday, Andrew turned in his personal best time of 4 hrs and 41 minutes. Outstanding! Andrew was joined by his brother Stephen who ran the Half Marathon.
On August 21st, Patrick Bateman (Phil’s cousin Peter’s son) completed his first Triathlon representing Team Dykeman.
Patrick along with 125 other kids swam, biked and ran in an event meant to engage kids in outdoor activities. Patrick participated in the 9-11 yr old category where they had to swim 2 laps of the pool, tranistion to their bikes for a 3.5 mile ride and then run .75 miles.
Throughout the event Patrick wore his Team Dykeman shirt and proudly wore his finishing metal the rest of the weekend. Everyone at Team Dykeman is very proud of Patrick’s accomplishment. Patrick’s Dad sponsored Patrick and will be donating $100 to Team Dykeman!

As I wrote the headline, I paused for a moment on the word serve. Should it be serve or should it be served? I quickly decided that serve was the right, as service to our country never ends. To all those who have died, to all those who have retired, to all those currently in the armed forces — all continue to serve! We at Team Dykeman thank you for your service and all the freedoms your service provides us.
I was passed a link that I thought very appropriate to a include on Veteran’s Day.
What a weekend! This past Sunday Team Dykeman entered 17 runners into the 2009 Marine Corp Marathon. All running to honor the memory of Capt. Phil. I am most please to announce that all 17 runners completed the 26.2 miles. Way to go team! Read the rest of this entry »
