I am a turtle runner. It was nice to see the beginning of the pack as well as the back of the pack today at the LOUISIANA MARATHON. It was interesting to see that there are runners that run 7 minute miles that look just as tired as a runner that runs 10 minute miles at mile 16 & mile 21. It was also nice to help cheer on runners knowing how much it is appreciated, especially late in the race. I got choked up for some of the runners when they were coming up on the last turn & would get that smile or start to cry. The emotions were very telling for their journey.

It was a wonderful set up for a marathon. I am going to ask some friends if they would like to do it next year. It's small size makes it look easier to move around walkers/slower runners.



Completed 2-Chicago Marathons, 4-Rock N Roll Half Marathons, 1-Monster Dash Half Marathon, 2-Soldier Field 10 Milers, 2-Shamrock Shuffles & multiple 5K & 10K races.
