There were a lot of local schools, churches, groups, and individual families running in the marathon! It was a hot afternoon with a threat of thunderstorms looming in the distance. The races were pushed up with age groups being lumped together. Luckily the rain held off and everyone got to race!
This was a fantastic experience not only for my son but for the entire family! My son chose to run with his Dad on race day which was extra special. Many of you know that last year my husband and I started training for the half-marathon. Due to complications with shin splints I can not run, not even now. My husband continued to train until March when he unfortunately had a mini stroke. This run, a year later, no matter the distance meant a lot.
- I dusted my friends!
- My metal!
- The snacks at the finish line and fun things afterwards like the bouncy castles!
- I got to race with all my friends!
- I didn't like that I sweated a lot!
