Update On The 2011 National Masters 800M Championship!

Hi All,

For those of you who've been following my pursuit of a National Masters 800M title, the wait is over! Today, I fulfilled my 2 1/2 year dream by taking the National Gold Medal at the National Championships in Cleveland, OH :^)

The results are here: http://www.usatf.org/events/2011/USAMastersOutdoorTFChampionships/results/F562.asp

My upcoming book has its happy ending and I look forward to writing that final chapter in the coming weeks. I've pledged to donate my first-year proceeds to youth running programs, so stay tuned to http://www.fasterthanforty.com/ and http://www.facebook.com/FasterThanForty for details!

Cheers,

Mark G.
