I just want to thank you for the age award you sent me in the mail. I have run over 50 marathons and I have come to realize that there is so much more enjoyment to running when you don't chase the clock. By far this was my longest time to complete a marathon and even got an award :)), but BY FAR one of my top 2 marathons I have ever run. From the community involvement, run organization and beautiful scenery....THE BEST!!! Running was secondary to visiting with people along the run and simply enjoying the surroundings along the way. I am almost finished with my goal to run all 50 states, but when that is complete I will be back to experience this marathon again, and will definitely stay longer. Thank you for all your hard work and such an awesome experience for me!! Please extend my thanks to everyone involved.
