Last fall your paper published my story about my walk to the Mackinac bridge to inspire my son who will be leaving in June for marine boot camp. I wanted to write in to thank the many people who have encouraged me as well as to give an update on my progress. I am over half way there. I have completed 84 of the 144 miles. Hoping to be able to finish the 60 miles I have left before he leaves in June. Its going to be tough. But I›m hanging in there and giving it my best effort.
