Teon Taylor – (HF7350, DA2180, MM12553) -Participated in the 50th anniversary of @shamrockmarathon weekend. Did the 8k Saturday which was warm but so much fun. So many people on both days. Sunday was the half. Started off chilly but warmed up once the sun came out. Great course support though. Would highly recommend it just for the swag and after party alone.
