|Comments:||aloha chuck , i ran in the 2002 maui marathon with you , i think that you sent me a copy of your "adventures in paradise" article which appeared in the may/june #7-3 issue of the "marathon and beyond" describing the race that year and i was mentioned in the closing paragraph , this year i'm attempting my 35th consecutive maui marathon and have been invited to deliver a 1hr seminar at the runner's expo at packet pick-up the day before the race and would like permission to read from your article , also , i'm missing two pages of it and the marathon and beyond online bookstore is sold out of that issue , so i have two requests : may i quote from your wonderful article in my speech and , if so , would you be so kind as to email me a full copy , mahalo nui loa , billy ..... p.s. congratulations on achieving your goal of completing a marathon in all 50 states and d.c. , nice job , keep up the good work and blessings to you !|
|Comments:||WAY TO GO CHUCK!!! Congrats on your remarkable story and achievement! As a Charleston native(Davis Creek) I definitely commend you on your efforts. I'm no athlete of any sort and my only claim to "althletic ability" is that I can play a sorry round of golf. By the way, wonder if your line of the Bryant's is any relation to mine? My family lived just above Davis Creek on Bridlewood Road for years. My grandparents were Charlie and Tootsie Bryant...Just wondering.|
|Comments:||Congratulations with this accomplishment from Belgium.
You really are a model for the most of us.
|Comments:||I thought I signed your guest book long ago - apparently not. My first marathon was Lost Dutchman and I remember so well coming up on you at, maybe, mile 10 or so. Only later did I discover you were a regular participant in the Runners World forums. (You may remember me as N3103F. :) )
I refer to your marathon page often, and always take inspiration away from it. I've run 29 of them now, several chosen because of a favorable report and great pictures on your page. I've got 21 states down, four continents, and it's rare that I run one without thinking of you at some point along the way.
I hope things are going well for you, Chuck. May the best of things be yours.
|Comments:||Oh, Chuck & Jan -
I'm reading in The Answer Is 42 about the reptilian brain & chocolate-seeking. Guess what - chocolate is beyond reptilian:
"lighting up the brain’s 'pleasure centers' in much the same way that eating chocolate, sniffing cocaine or even having sex does."
|Comments:||In a past life I used to attend the Andrews Avenue Church of Christ. We became acquainted about when you had your accident & had the amputation. You would take the bus, I'd pick you up & drive you wherever. I had a daughter from a marriage I had escaped. I was a teacher.
Then I got married & moved to central Florida - St. Cloud, to be exact. You got out of counseling & into airports. You came & saw my husband, Lloyd Olson, & my child at our house.
Your discipline amazes me.
I am glad you have found yourself a wife.
Would you two please e-mail me & I'll continue.
Cindy Weatherred Chamberlain (I'll tell you where Olson went later)
|Comments:||I LIKE YOUR WEBSITE. I VERY ENCOURAGED ABOUT ALSO DOING THE 50 STATES THING. YOU HAVE VERY BEAUTIFUL PICTURES ESP. IN THE NE.

PLEASE CONTINUE TO KEEP ON RUNNING AND BEING FIT. YOUR TWICE THE MAN MOST OF SISSIES ARE.
MAY GO BLESS YOU THROUGH THE DAY.

|Comments:||WOW! 50 and DC!! Big congrats to you! You continue to amaze me!! I am back trying to racewalk again, although very slowly, but saw your site and wanted to say hi! Also loved the concert photos. I have a bunch on my own site of Heart, as while I was not racewalking, I began attending many of their shows across the country...and had the opportunity to meet them twice in person as well.
We met through Miami Feet RC while doing the Oleta Trail Run and the Twilight Race. It's a pleasure to have met you. Hope to see you soon again.
|Comments:||Thanks for documenting our quaint little CT trail marathon. Good luck on your 50+DC ... I just ran MED-CITY to add MN, and bring my total up to 38+DC so far.|
|Comments:||If I haven't said it before, I'll say it again loudly and clearly: thank you so much for sharing your accomplishments and accompanying struggles. This 50-marathon-state aspirant has benefitted greatly from the time and effort you take to document these marathons in great detail. Your summaries are nearly as valuable as travelogues as they are as race reports and reviews.|
|Comments:||i really like knowing about your experiences. LOVE, cheryl|
As our first snow of the year hits us today (Nov 14/05) in WINTERpeg, Manitoba, Canada, I have just spent the last 1/2 hour or so looking over your great site. I really enjoyed it. Have not taken the time to read many of your comments, I quickly went through your races and enjoyed your pictures. I will spend time this winter reading your reports.
I am just a rookie in marathons compared to you. I have run 13 so far with my last 2 being Fargo and Tampa Bay. I plan to run L.A. this March and Fargo once again next May. I was lucky enough to run a marathon in Germany, (Frankfurt) 3 years ago.
Would love to see you add a Canadian Marathon to your list. The National Capital Marathon in Ottawa is one that I can highly recommend. (ran it 2x).
thank you for your site.
Keep running strong and proud.

Amazing feat (no pun intended!)!! Are you still running marathons? I am also trying to run the 50 states and DC. I have done 9 states so far (14 marathons overall) and after reading stories like yours I get really excited to get out there and do some running. You are an inspiration to all of us who enjoy marathoning and living life to its fullest.
Just checking out some pictures. See you soon.

|Comments:||I loved your 50 States sites. I have a dream of completing a marathon in every state and I enjoyed your photos and experiences.
|Comments:||I enjoy your marathon essays very much. I'm only hope I can experience some of the journeys that you've been through.|
|Comments:||Chuck - I am proud to say I ran the Snowflake 50K (West Virginia) with you in 2003 even though I didn't know that until today. Your site gave me a nice tour of the USA and has inspired me to persue more races in more places. Thanks.|
I just found your web site; I really like the way you set it up. I’m planning on running a marathon in every state. I lost my 28year old son to diabetes and I decided to run a marathon in every state to raise the awareness to the warning signs. You are truly an inspiration to me.
Keep up the good work.

Well, well. I have learned something about you. And I am impressed. You had mentioned marathon info on your website but we never got around to clarifying it. Humm. Quiet waters run deep. I also checked out the TCPC link. Perhaps we can share another time to sit and talk about this too. I really enjoyed the time spent at the Il Piccilo. Good company, good food.
|Comments:||Hey Chuck, Im a 52 year old BK amputee as of Jan 2001. I have always enjoyed jogging and after my amputation I set a goal of finishing a 5k...since then i have had many more 5k races and am working up the ladder to longer races. Great site and keep smilin...Bruce|

|Comments:||Nice page, Chuck. Just like your race reports, though, it will take several visits to see it all.
I'm looking forward to checking out the concert page. You mention several of my favorite artists.
