What a weekend! This past Sunday Team Dykeman entered 17 runners into the 2009 Marine Corp Marathon. All running to honor the memory of Capt. Phil. I am most please to announce that all 17 runners completed the 26.2 miles. Way to go team!
The weekend kick-off with a Pre-Marathon dinner. Runners and supports gathered for dinner, a few speeches but
mostly to enjoy each other’s company and prepare for the marathon. Team shirts were handed out to the runners and by 8:30 pm all had retired to their rooms to mentally prepare.
Sunday was a beautiful, temps in the low 60’s sunny with light breeze. Runners wound there way through the streets of Arlington, Georgetown, District of Columbia, back into Virginia to finish appropriately at the Iwo Jima Memorial.
By the end of the afternoon all 17 Team Dykeman runners had finished and recieved their medals. Over the next several days I hope to get pictures posted! Runners please leave comments detailing your experience!
Congratulations to all!
