Some may say that I’m a bit of a fanatic when it comes to running. For a lot of people, a marathon is something you only do once. It’s something that you check of your list of “things to do before I die”, and that’s the end of it. For me, I was hooked at the first finish line, and I keep coming back for more. Tomorrow will be my 10th attempt at 26.2 miles, and each time the excitement, the emotions, and of course the finish line still get me…it’s thrilling.
And now, it has become an opportunity for my husband and I to travel to unique locations and see their best 26.2 miles. No matter what happens at the race, it is always an experience.
This is the 35th year of the St. George marathon. At the expo, there was a tribute showing every finisher’s t-shirt for the past 35 years. Here’s a fun one from 1981- how cute, right? I wish they were selling some of these retro t-shirts- that would be a fantastic fit!
