If you’re a runner you know that not everyone has this kind of view at the starting line of a big race. Especially when there are 20,000+ participants in the race. As Team Hoyt runners, we got to start behind the wheelchair racers and ahead of the elite runners. Those folks quickly overtook us, and it’s safe to say that we were ultimately passed by several thousand. No worries; we got the same medal, banana, water, towel, energy bars, popsicle, gatorade, chocolate milks, fruit cup and beer as they did.
