Several from area tackle the Mercedes Marathon



 

 


There were many of us who trained and ran in the Mercedes Marathon last month. After months of training it has finally come and gone. For some it was a first and last race, for others it wasn’t the first and certainly won’t be the last. I think all runners have a great “race” story. If you have run a lot you might forget the details of some races, but I would venture to say that the first marathon or half-marathon lives in your mind each and every mile thereafter. I personally find that it’s like eating a bag of potato chips – it’s nearly impossible to stop after just one. –Lynn Pass, The Gym
