The Marathon was on trails, which is the reason I did not run. I am not a dirty, muddy, trail kind of runner. The marathon raised money for international safe houses for orphans. What an amazing cause!
So, we arrived in the freezing (literally) cold weather and were put to work. Emma and I helped set up a cupcake stand for the runners...an awesome post run treat! We helped set up the marathon and relay turnaround point. I also helped direct runners at the turnaround. It was a long, cold morning, but it was very inspiring! I loved being on the other side of a race and I was so thankful Emma gave of her time to be with me. Emma was definitely a trooper! She was super cold all morning!
