Shots from Saturday – 19 Miles of Good Company and Sunshine!

Given the fantastic weather, we had well over 50 runners on the DFMC group run this weekend.  Almost everyone ran at least 18 miles, which included all of the Newton Hills.  Yes, that’s right – we all ran the infamous “Heartbreak Hill.”  Of course, it is important to note that “Heartbreak Hill” came around mile 9, not mile 21 (like it will on race day).  None the less, it was a great way to spend a Saturday morning.  Here’s the proof:

Hills and having fun!

The return trip, around mile 12 or so – it all
becomes  a blur after a while

out every weekend to man water stations.
 A special thanks to Glen Graubart for pulling out the camera and capturing all of the fun!
