I still have a smile on my face
While it has been two weeks since the 2014 version of the Mesa Falls marathon, I still have a smile on my face when thinking of the entire experience! You, and all the volunteers of the Ashton area, are remarkable in the personal touches you all provided throughout the weekend. It has been said that the “devil is in the details” or that “little things make a difference”and the Mesa Falls marathon drove those points home. Obviously, the weather could not be controlled, yet the work done to repair some of the washed out areas on the first part of the course were phenomenal. And, then throughout the race itself, mother nature presented a few more “opportunities”, yet everyone greeted the runners with such hospitality. I found myself looking forward to the aid stations and having a chance to visit with the volunteers. And, never (in over 30 marathons) have I seen each aid station provide such a consistent array of energy sources – even for those of us at the back of the pack.
I belong to a running group here in the Dallas area...and have been singing your praises since returning home and encouraging any interested in a morning spent with awe inspiring nature...and equally inspiring volunteers...to run Mesa Falls.
Please share my appreciation with any and all volunteers and aid station workers. You all make a difference!
