It only gets better.

As a few of you know, I have had the pleasure of becoming acquaintances with Dick Beardsley over the past few years. In fact,he did write the introduction for my book coming out soon. Nevertheless, I still can't get over emails that pop into my inbox like this one:

Hi Dane,

I was checking out and look what I found!

Little Grand Canyon Marathon - Sep 13 - Price, UT
Dane Rauschenberg, 32 of Arlington VA, the winner of the 2006 Drake Well Marathon, won the 2008 Little Grand Canyon Marathon in 3:05:28.

CONGRATULATIONS!!! That's pretty cool that you outright won a marathon! That has to get you pumped up!

Take care and have a great day!

I still have to do double-takes and think: "Wait. Did Dick Beardsley just write to me?"

Big smiles for me today.

That is so cool, Dane! He is clearly a truly nice guy to take the time to do that. Yay for you! :)
