One last update.

Mark is home and he's hurting. Right now he's upstairs resting and drinking Gatorade. His feet are in bad shape from him being doused with water throughout the race in an effort to stay cool. All the water made his feet and shoes wet, which isn't optimal for long distance running. He's got blisters galore.

He did cross the finish line. He was at mile 23 when they canceled the race due to the heat and police offers were telling everyone to stop running and walk. He was already walking by that time. Over three hundred people were treated for heat ailments and one man has died from it. Read the story.

He's hoping he can heal quickly because he has another marathon coming up.

I'm just glad he's okay.
