8) Marathon Season - This past weekend the first major marathon kicked off and Charlotte was well represented as usual. With plenty more to come in the next two months, send a shout out to your club friends with some words of encouragement when you get a chance and/or join the marathoners on a few training runs. It can be a long grind preparing for a marathon but very a very satisfying accomplishment. Go CRC!!!
