After the M.C.'s introduced all the morning guests, the cancer survivors took to the track to walk the Survivors Lap. The Claremont High School Jazz band struck up a beat and the survivor lap began. Once the lap was completed the track was opened to all other participant's.
(Marc and Tanya early miles)
We were stationed out of tent #36 were Bernadette and Marilyn kept things in order.They kept the tent stocked with all types of food and drink. Both marathon finishers of GTM Fitness Runners group, Bernie and Marilyn know all to well of what the body needs to complete an attempt such as this. They prepared for us food including: fresh fruit, peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, warm beans & rice and especially those delicious hot bowls of soup late at night and the early morning hours. They were on the ball! They made sure we stayed hydrated and fed till the end.
