Derya At the Great Wall of China Marathon

The Great Wall Of China Marathon - Derya

The events leading up to a challenging Marathon were challenging in themselves, but Derya persevered and kicked butt in both.

Valerie had problems at mile 18, but she persevered and finished with a 7 minute PR.  Next - a BQ!!

Congratulations Vince on completing the 80 day running streak

 

Minor characters in this epic were Cory, Bob, and Rob who completed the 40 day challenge.  Rob was overcome with a wave of good sense and stopped at 40 Days.  It's not clear why Cory stopped posting after 48 days.  And, Bob had to take a sick day after day 48 and continued posting a "broken streak" (well most of the time).

 

Jon P Sean struggled out of the gate, but once he got started, he chipped in 400 miles.

 

Amelia never got started, but she managed to get to 100 miles.
