National Marathon

Many PGRCers participated in yesterday’s National Marathon, Half Marathon, and Relay.   And the PGRC group at the mile 15 aid station, led by Yvette Lumpkins, did a fantastic job of keeping the marathoners hydrated and motivated for the second half of the race.  Here’s a partial listing of yesterday’s finishers- I know I’m missing a bunch of people so please comment below with your name and finish time and I’ll add you to the list.
