Wine Country Half Marathon: Dave Survives 13 Miles in the Virginia Sun
July 11, 2013 YeBu® News & Events
Early last month, Dave walked the Virginia Wine Country Half Marathon, as did daughter Lauren and a handful of other relatives, including: Jillian, Karen, Melissa, and Tony. All of the group but Dave can be counted as accomplished athletes who would normally run the half marathon. Niece Jillian and her fiance Karen, however, chose to walk the entire course with Dave, noting, “13 miles is a long way to walk alone.” Indeed it is and Dave was very grateful for their company!
By the end of the race, marathon officials had determined that Dave was the only one of the 2,100 participants who covered the entire 13.1 miles wearing blue jeans. Perhaps a Levi’s endorsement is in the offing . . .
