Meredith had been training for months. She had a schedule she kept and on alot of her training runs, especially the long ones, I rode my bike along with her. But the day was finally here and she was more then ready. She had a couple of friends from her Ragnar team coming to run with her. The marathon started at Ussery Mountain shooting range bright and early.
This is a picture of Meredith with her Ragnar partners John, Rik and Rik's friend Jess that all came from out of state to run the marathon with Meredith.

I rode my bike through the whole marathon and I had a cow bell around my neck so I just rang it and rang it all day. Whenever anyone heard the bell they knew I was coming. It was really fun.
Meredith started running when she was losing her weight. She lost 101 lbs. But up until this run, she has done several 5K's 10k's and 3 1/2 marathons. She says this is her only marathon she'll ever do, but I think now that she's done one she will do alot more. Congratulations to Meredith, one down and who knows how many more to come. Way to Go!!!!!!
