The Phoenix has risen!

"I've got my boxing gloves back on and I'm ready to fight!"

That's right folks...amid the mixed metaphors, Danno is indeed BACK!

Just got off the phone with him, and he's now en route to where he left off. Food and rest has done wonders for his spirit. That and the tremendous support from all of you out there. Dan is bound and determined to make Run 192 a reality.

Dan thinks that he underestimated the physical toll his body took last night when he passed out. Though he felt better this morning when he went to resume running, it did not take long for the heat and humidity to bring him back to the dark place. He said it was the hottest he's ever been in his life. He was on a "death march" and he had to stop for a while.

But he's back and should be starting up any minute now in Cape Cod where he left off. We should be able to resume tracking him right away. His legs feel fine and he's certain he'll be running. Some new gel inserts for his sneaks won't hurt either. It's still a bit humid, but pretty cool, and there doesn't seem to be a chance for rain.

"I'm just glad I'm not in the hospital", he finished with.

Can you believe this spirit? It's all of your support that is driving him now. If you've been waiting to donate, now is the time to do it! We just need a little bit more to break $6,000. If Danno's not inspiring you right now, then you're uninspirable. Yes, that's probably not a word.

You can do it, Dan!
