      1. So maybe because I applied before my page didn’t ask anything more than what I posted this morning with my name, email and message. I hope that was all I needed? I am sure you are swamped with messages – so I will be patient and don’t need a reply right away. šŸ™‚

  1. I was exhilarated by the half-marathon I participated in. Now I’m back to try to complete a full-marathon. It is such a stimulating exercise! Highly recommended!

  2. Yay! Signed up to do the full marathon again! I had such an amazing time in 2017 that I knew I HAD to do it again. Thank you for bringing it back this year in spite of your busy schedules and family life.
    In the last two years I have gone back and reread what I wrote the first time. It is fun to remember just how exhausted I was on some of them and then that second, third and fourth wind! Hehe
