The credit processing problem at Lightbox has been resolved and the system is back on-line.

There are still a few spots left in the marathon. The half marathon has crossed the 50% mark - and is now about 55% full.

Also noted - September 1st the prices go up another $5 (and as we said before $5 is five bucks). Time to commit.

The marathon is down to 31 spots left... My guess is they are gone by Monday - thanks for that!
The half is now officially half sold (no pun intended) - and thanks for that!
