Hi Wayne

Congratulations on running such a successful event…again.

 I spoke to you briefly after the presentations to let you know how much I enjoyed the marathon and that I was celebrating my 60th Birthday that day by doing my first marathon.

 I have attached a photo taken after the finish to mark the occasion of the 15th Big Island Marathon and my 60th Birthday.

 I ran into Clyde Shank from Texas along the way who was doing his 78th marathon!!! What an inspiration he is!!

I live in Port Macquarie on the east coast of Australia…about half way between Sydney and Brisbane in a town of around 50000 so we have much in common with Hilo.

 Thanks again for a terrific event.               Regards Rex
