The Big Finish

Look, we have enough juice left to raise our arms triumphantly! Pretty impressive, don’t ya think? That’s me on the right in blue and a big hat. Coach is matching me stride for stride. Ok ok, truth be told I followed her footsteps the last 3 miles – watching her feet moving along was the main thing keeping me going. Then Bert’s outstretched arms waiting for me at the finish motivated me to lift my head, pick up my feet and join Allison through the finish!

  1. WAY TO GO, KATHLEEN!!!! We are so pleased for you in this accomplishment. It is a joy and inspiration to witness one conquer obstacles …..and conquer you did!!!!
    May the sweetness of this victory be a cloak you wear for quite some time!!!

    Hugs, Kathleen
