I don't expect to be running another marathon anytime soon. But I do expect that there will be many more opportunities to help our younger orienteers -- not just financially, but also through anything from coaching to transportation to just encouragement or showing an interest in them. Many of you already do this, and do it a lot. It makes a difference.

Finally, just a personal note. I was thinking about your pledges every single mile into Boston. It turned an experience that I feared would be difficult and depressing into one that, while still difficult, was also exhilarating. I will remember it fondly for a long time. Thank you.

And I know the juniors thank you too.
