Yesterday was the Royal Victoria Marathon. Suede and a few of our friends ran the half marathon, which, in my opinion, is still a great accomplishment. I managed to see everyone that I knew was running the race while they were on course. I always find it amazing how many people take part in these events. It is pretty amazing to stand in one spot as the lead runner comes by, then wait until the street is jam packed with people running. Seeing the downtown streets with no cars and packed with people is pretty awe inspiring.
I am very proud of all my friends who did the race. I think it is a huge accomplishment to finish the race. While not everyone set a personal best, I think that each and everyone of them should be proud of their race.
