Amy, Christine and I woke up yesterday morning in our hotel room and turned on the 6am news. The director of the Maine Marathon was being interviewed, and his comments were a bit disheartening to say the least. "We expect people will drop out due to the weather" and "we don't expect any race records to be broken today". These comments, followed by the meteorologist talking about the "cold, driving rain with gusts up to 30mph" were a bit daunting. Still, there was a race to be run, so we laced up our sneakers and headed out the door. What happened next? You're just going to have to wait to find out! There are many great stories, pictures, people and video (once I recharge my battery so I can actually get to it) to share. There are folks to congratulate and people to thank. So stay tuned over the next few days....I promise you won't regret it!
