Great Experience (about: 2005)|
M. M. from Rochester, NY (9/23/05)
1 previous marathon
| 1 Rochester Marathon
I originally signed up to run the half-marathon, even though I didn't really prepare enough. I'm just a part-time runner. At race-time, I felt great. As the race progressed, the fans and runners really inspired me. I felt so good, that at the 6-mile turnaround, I decided to go on. I did 21 miles pretty much effortlessly, then struggled throuth the last five. The fans along the way, the volunteers, and every runner I met were amazing. I loved the course, the weather was great, and the overall experience was one of the best of my life. I can't believe how much fun I had, and how great I felt. People treated us like celebrities! I can't wait to do another one.
