Google Glass Explorer

On Feb. 22, I told Google why I wanted to be a Google Glass Explorer. I want to be among the first people to wear them so I can show everyone around the world how it feels to run a marathon. Last night, I received the following tweet of good news to my @Marathoner account:

I am ecstatic about this. I have to figure out a thing or two in the meantime, and I invite any other runners to share your thoughts with me. For starters, I understand that it might be $1,000 to $1,500 to buy the Glass. I want to see if the Marathon Maniacs org might be interested in helping to defray that as I would be running my first marathon as Maniac #6697. If you want to help make it possible, I could use an assist when that point comes very shortly. And I wonder what you would want me to share in running a marathon with Glass. I have to find out how exactly I would NOT destroy a prototype pair over 5 1/2 hours.  :)
