There are some amazing folks that participate in the Little Rock Marathon and Half Marathon, and I’m not just talking about the elite runners……
…though they are pretty awesome!
And the regular “Joe’s” are not too shabby as well. I mean, seriously, it’s a great testament to our state, one that is known for it’s lack of healthy behaviors, that so many residents take the time to train, week in and week out, for months, and then pay good money to get up at the crack of dawn and run in a cold rain!
Some even dress up for the occasion!
That being said, there are some exceptional runners that are willing to lend a helping hand….
…or a pair of eyes…..
…so that others can participate in this event.
A lot of heart goes into both organizing and participating in the Little Rock Marathon. It’s always been evident, energizing me as I make my way around downtown Little Rock.
It’s one of the things that keeps me coming back!
