What a great marathon today!!

I just have to say that I had a blast working the Georgia Publix Marathon today. What a fun event! And watching a marathoner who had just finished running 26 miles stop for an on-camera interview and not even be winded ... well, that reminds me just how out of shape I am !!

We even saw a 79-year-old man who just completed his 100th marathon! What an awesome accomplishment!
