A Marathon Weekend

If you've been living under a rock, you might not know that this past weekend was the 29th annual Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon. It's called "The Most Beautiful Urban Marathon in America" and this weekend, it definitely lived up to it's name.


Runners had near perfect conditions for the 26.2: a crisp 38 degrees at the start, little wind, and sunny skies. It was the perfect day for a PR, and many did, like our Sergio Reyes, the men's winner, Buzunesh Deba, the women's champ (who also rocked Grandma's Marathon earlier in June), and blogger friend Matt.

But me, I just worked it.

My view for the day was the finish line, as I was stationed in the Media Tent a mere twenty feet from it. Talk about guts and glory. It's amazing. I think the best part was when Sergio finished and hugged his wife of four months.

Anything you saw on Facebook, YouTube, or Twitter was from the Media Committee in the Media Tent. They did an awesome job and made my job of writing press releases much, much easier. More photos and videos will be posted this week... I just have to get all of them off my camera.

Congratulations to everyone that finished! You've just accomplished something that only 1% of the population will ever do.
