Edmonton Marathon Aug 18-
HUGE shoutout to the little girl who completed the 5K walk/run on her skateboard. You zoomed past me and I lost sight of you so I really hope you finished the course. Lots of people shy away from these events because they think they can’t do it, but you did it with your arms! You are amazing and a true inspiration.
Also a huge shoutout to the event organizers and volunteers. Thank you for making this such a positive experience, regardless of our finish times. Participation is participation, and your enthusiastic support along the way truly helped many of us push forth and finish. Your energy never quit and neither did we.
A great big congrats to everyone who participated in this event. I hope you achieved your goal, whether it be surprising yourself with a better finish time than you expected, knowing you added a touch of positivity to someone’s day, collecting funds for a charity you support, or even just getting outside and enjoying the cool weather. Way to go! May today have been awesome for you because you deserve it! 😀
