Most welcoming Sight: "The volunteers at the aid stations who gave out water and food. The looks on some of the participants' faces were priceless... a look of pain, determination, and sometimes happiness or defeat"During training: "We would take body checks, asking each other 'how do you feel,' and just talked. It was social."During the race: "I put on my race face. I tell myself I am doing this for me and can get it done. I go within. I focus on how I feel and listen to my body and my stomach. I have a sensitive stomach. I check my watch to make sure I eat or drink something every 20 minutes. And I check my time splits. I do a lot of praying and being thankful that I am alive and can do this."
