Our daughter finished this race, running in a downpour, her first Marathon since that tragic day she ran the Boston Marathon last April.
Here's hoping she exorcised those demons from that day.
that's a nice story! what a terrible experience for all last Fall.
Congratulations to anadyr's daughter!
Great news anadyr. Best of luck to her next month in BOS and to all running as well.
Congratulations to all of you, for it had to be a very special "Family event"!
Good luck in Boston!
Awesome! Congratulations to her and your entire family, anadyr. We will definitely be cheering for her next month in Boston .
Thanks ANSAA very much, The healing process will take a while. She wore her Boston Marathon jacket and sweatshirt part of the time before and after the race, and the welcoming comments made all of us feel better.
A special shout out to the entire staff at the Napa Valley Marriott, especially to Shawn M., the GM and his caring staff. Many personally took time to ask our daughter what Boston was like, how she did, what she intended to do this year. It made it a very emotional and wonderful stay experience, embodying the Spirit to Serve at its best.
I missed this. Congratulations to her! How did she do (How did she feel about her performance?) Here's hoping she will be ready for the big day next month.
Off her personal best but it was raining. Lots of tears too since she had her Boston tee shirt on. The Marriott was exceptionally kind to her and us. giving her special treatment and softening the impact.
That's very nice to hear. Good for her (and mom and dad too). I'm sure the race participants will get lots of (extra dose of) love, support and goodwill this year, and rightly so.
We've got our Beantown Wicked Marathon paraphernalia ready and we're hoping that a year makes a big difference.
