I’m used to being the one competing in an event, but I was happy to be a cheerleader this weekend for one of my best friends, Melissa, as she completed her first marathon!
Melissa ran with another one of our K-State Theta friends, Danielle, who ran the 1/2 marathon. Here they are at mile 6.
Then she went on to run the second half by herself. Here she is at mile 16 – all smiles!
It was a fun day to cheer her on – I’m so proud of her and how far she’s come in two years! You can read her view of the marathon here.
