Medal Monday brings many stories of achievement for our members. Here are 10 recent stories from the Marathon Maniacs and Half Fanatics, as told by you, as posted on the Marathon Maniacs/Half Fanatics Facebook pages.
Eddie Hahn (MM184)–Mesa Arizona 4:20 pacer, Since there was no assigned official pacer T Shirt, I wore my yellow Maniac Singlet. Also a plus, free race pictures.
John Colvard (MM13439) — Sorta medal Monday for me. Ski to the Sun Ski Marathon on Saturday for me. They had no finisher medals so I am posting the race beanie and logo from it. I have done several ski races up to 10 miles and multisport ski events (winter tri/biathlon) but never marathon distance for a ski race. This was challenging with over 2000′ of elevation gain and very icy slopes that were difficult to get grip climbing and controlling the few descents on the race!
Ilse Berube (MM15780) –State 26 …. Marathon 27….Great start…HOT and crampy ending but ARIZONA
Gilberto Sosa (MM7904, DA1598, HF12046) – Lifetime marathon #107 completed!!!! A rainy one!!! — at Publix Florida Marathon.
