Race Report 26.2 with Donna

Well, this was my long run, non-race event this past weekend.  One of the nicest race experiences I’ve had. I was asked a few weeks ago by a friend if I would come up and support her first Marathon.  Due to some unforseen events, her family was unable to make it up there. I admit, …
