Relay exchange at 13.1.
The rain held off, the temperatures stayed in the mid-40s and another Glass City Marathon is in the books. Five-person relay teams provided the energy, the narrow two-lane into Side Cut Metropark provided the close quarters so that fishermen and runners could share their Sunday together, and a lot of special people made my 13.1 miles fly past.
Lorrie Cesarz at 13.1 relay exchange.
Lorrie completed the opening relay leg by arriving in Side Cut at about 10 a.m., and I arrived at the Wyndham finish line at the 4:11.00 mark. Water stations and support were fantastic, blunting the chill, and slight headwind.
Congratulations to the Toledo Roadrunners, and to all the first-time marathoners for finishing a tough city course.
