2015 Twin Cities Marathon-ABC WEDNESDAY "M"
I arrived at the corner of Fairview and Summit Avenues in St Paul at 7:30 a.m to watch the runners and to cheer them on. With cowbell to ring and camera in hand, I watched an amazing number of people of all ages compete. The air was cool in the 40's but the sun was warm. Spectators also ranged in age from infants and toddlers all the way up into the 80's. In previous years I waited until much later in the morning to cheer and encourage those who were not as fleet afoot. Despite enjoying seeing the front runners, I think that next year I will wait until later in the morning as I had previously. At that time there are more older runners, and I like to see that! Gotta love all people who train long hours before the race and who give it their all during the marathon!
