A very early race start for the Charlottesville Marathon and 1/2 Marathon on a beautiful sunny spring morning (ok dark at the start) at 6:30am! The best daughter, Olivia, and her BFF, Liz V. competed in this great event. This was Olivia's first foray into long-distance running and respectfully finished in 1:43 placing 60th overall (close to 500 runners); 12th woman and 4th in her age group. That means she won some hardware!
Momma and Papa very proud of her effort and thankful all her hard training paid off today!
BSoleille! The bright side of a good long run (with hills)!
