I want to thank you and your staff for all you did to make the 2005 Deadwood Mickelson Trail Marathon and Half Marathon such a huge success.
Your generous contribution of the free entry fee for state employees was greatly appreciated by the many state employees who took advantage of it. State employee participation was well over what any of us expected. Solve achieved goals they would never have tried had it not been for your offer; the accomplishment was very rewarding for them. I continue to hear from employees grateful for the opportunity to participate.
Again, I would like to thank you for your contribution to all the state employees who challenged themselves to reach the finish line.
M. Michael Rounds
