go team Kenshikai!

Well, we did it. We had several people who ran the entire 3.2 miles and we had people who ran part of it and we had three of us who just walked the thing.

But we did it. And in the end we did raise $3000 (actually $3050) as a team. I am very pleased. Kudos to Senpais Steven and Liza, who were our team captains. Among the high points: the woman who was playing the cowbell out of her sixth-story window on Central Park West, the various cheerleaders (including some actual ones from NYU and elsewhere), and the talks given at the top of the event by various celebrities from grand marshal Cynthia Nixon to the one and only Stephen Colbert. Colbert was particularly amusing: "I haven't stretched, but I did get an epidural." "I'm part of a team from The Colbert Report. I'm not the captain -- that job went to someone who's actually athletic."

I came home and fell right asleep, and I intend to fall back asleep in about four-and-a-half seconds (I woke up to pee). Many pictures were taken, and I'll try to post them when I get them.
