That was the greatest day as a teacher of my life.  I am still processing what just 
happened but my brain and body need a little time to recover.  Thank you for coming 
up with and sharing this amazing idea of how to get kids moving.  Now because of your 
original idea there are over 600 students and their families excited about exercising 
and getting/staying fit in Gardner, Kansas.  I can not thank you enough for setting 
such a great example.

PS   I will get you shirt in the mail monday.  Life got a little crazy this week.

Kyle is a PE teacher at Moonlight Elementary in Gardner, KS.  He
contacted me way back in October, having seen the article in Ultra
Running Magazine about Mr. Parry's Endurance Challenge.  He had
questions about doing the same challenge for his students and we
have been in contact ever since, with information for each other
about both challenges.  His 24 Hour Challenge happened this week
with Kyle running 24 hours from Thursday morning to Friday morning
for his students.  
Amazing and very cool!

Here is a link to a TV story done about his challenge the morning
of his 24 hour run.  You have got to watch it.  He seems like a
great guy who is genuinely interested in his students' well being.
