Mayor's Marathon

We had 10 people from KC and 18 from Springfield do the race in Anchorage. Everyone finished and we had some pretty good times for that course. We also had a marriage proposal......
Congratulations to Michelle and Greg. Greg had these signs out near the end of the 1/2 marathon course and Michelle held up the "yes" sign as Greg finished the marathon...We also were treated to a lunch at Cindy's house. Her parents live in Anchorage and we had a pre-victory party there.
The weather was perfect...there was a light drizzle but the temp was perfect. I had loaded up my I-pod with a lot of Moody Blues tunes and just ran nice and easy. I came in at 5:16:50 and felt pretty good. The tank trail was in great shape....no large round rocks covering it like 2 years ago. The medal was much nicer also....
