It was quite an adventure, but well worth it in every way. If you're a runner and thinking about taking the challenge, you won't be disappointed!
That's awesome! Congratulations! I ran that in 2008! I'm a Marine, and was stationed there at Moneterey at the DoD Language Institute from 08-09.
When I was there, we Marines helped out with that marathon every year, standing at the mile markers and calling out times, doing pushups, and just trying to motivate the runners! Were the Marines out there again this year? I hope so!
