I got to see the beginning of this years Marine Corps Marathon and it was a sight to see. It appeared that the last runners crossed the starting line around the 20 minute mark and there were clothes EVERYWHERE!!!!
Later in the day we were over at the national zoo, and I saw my first marathon finisher. Even if she hadn’t been wearing here medal, the “omg I forgot my compression shorts” walk was a dead giveaway. I never saw a person so happy with themselves.
Of course throughout the rest of the day we saw more finishers, but I suspect that none of them felt s much of an accomplishment as the first one I saw.
Congratulations to all the finishers!
