    Smile 4 hour 30 min marathon
    Our 11 year old granddaughter just finished her 1st full marathon.
    The entire family was there to cheer her on.

    Very impressive for an 11 year old to do such an endeavor and great to hear that the whole family came together over it. My wife BC (before Chuck) ran a half marathon, blew her knee out and is so proud she did it. She was 36 and never ran a race in her life. Your 11 year old granddaughter will carry this with her for the rest of her life and its probably just the beginning.

    That is quite an accomplishment! I'll bet she's proud of her first one and I hope it's something she'll keep working on and beating her own record at least for the next several years. It is a pretty demanding sport, was she the youngest in it or did they have a group near her age?

    She is part of a team of kids about her age. They have doctors on the course who approve of them continuing.

    We met a OLD guy who had done 32 marathons.
    He was in Boston 2 weeks ago.

    I asked about that because a half-marathon runs past my house every year and we go out to hobnob with the neighbors and watch it, cheering the runners on. I haven't seen anyone in that race under maybe 16 or so - but many older people, some make you worry whether they'll make it to the finish. There's an ambulance or two just in case, never seen it required. I guess runners are in better shape than most of us.
