14 Year Old Dillon Hicks PRs in his FIRST 5K

Before our early start, a few of the Marathon Maniacs posed for a pre-race party pic; yours truly (in green tights) John, Wilma, Lyle & company all in smiles.

After a very short jaunt on the road, we turned off onto some beautiful trails. What started off in a rough pack, soon strung out into more of a single file as we wove (or is it weaved?) through sticks & stones, twigs, branches, roots & rocks. We soon were out into the open country.


The aid stations were AWESOME as were all of the volunteers. They really make it possible for many of us to make it through these events. Ken Childress & company reall…
