It was a thrilling experience for me that day to be present at such a special event that took place in our neighborhood. I was proud beyond description even in my capacity as a spectator so there is no need to use a lot of imagination to understand how all runners must have felt, while giving it all they had and the final satisfaction of achievement as they crossed the finish line. Bravo to them, our town, the volunteers and the sponsors and looking forward to cheer them again next year.
