Two of the ladies I ran with just recently completed the Madison Ironman. That is a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and a 26. 2 mile run. They amaze me.
If you have run in a marathon I'm sure you can remember all the feelings of that special day. The nerves, excitement, fear and pain! I experienced all those feelings again for all the dedicated runners out there. I was overcome by emotion when I arrived at the bus at 6 am watching all the runners pin their numbers and making sure they had all their gear. As I was running my leg of the relay I made sure to say something to each runner I passed. And to all the spectators that come out to support all of us runners - thank you, it is such a great feeling to have all that support on the course.
Special shout out to my friend Sap finishing his first marathon!
What a great weekend for running.
Running the second leg of relay.
My parents came out to support us. My husband took the pictures.
