I would like to extend a special thank you to:
Lyman Jordan - for his mentor-ship in taking my map making to the next level
Gene Newman/ Justin Kuo - for their continual support in all things "certifying and document processing"
Mr. Doug White - for bringing me into the fold back in 2008 when he first explained to me what USATF certification was and mentioning that I could download the manual and certify my own 5K
Mark Neal - for sharing the Open Office template that gave me a better alternative to my poor hand drawing (don't believe me? take a look at course# MD08015JS)
