Way to go, Steve!!! (posted by Lani)
What Ann didn't say in her post below was that Steve hadn't signed up for the marathon in time to get his own slot, and so he had to purchase a "bib" (a number and a slot so that he could run). That slot wasn't in his age group --- but if it had been, he would have come in ... are you ready for this? I wasn't. If he had been running under his own name and age, he would have come in 10th in his age group. TENTH. In his first marathon ever. I'm speechless, so it's a damn good thing I can type. What an absolutely amazing achievement.
Congratulations, nephew Steve. You rock in all sorts of ways, but this particular way is now officially public.
