I just wanted to thank you once again for sponsoring the Run to the Pub and it's wonderful prize! The Dublin Marathon was an amazing experience. The course runs through Dublin's historic streets and one of its beautiful parks. Since the race takes place on a holiday, the streets are lined with people cheering and offering advice and treats. I was lucky enough to meet two first time marathoners, Mark and Jim, from Ireland while we were waiting to start. Irish people are extremely friendly and have wonderful senses of humor that took my mind off the pre-race jitters. Mark and I ended up running the last half of the marathon together and finished feeling strong and happy with our races.
My husband, Bruce, and daughter, Ashley, both travelled to Ireland with me and we enjoyed traveling about the countryside together. Of course, no trip to Ireland would be complete without a trip to the Guinness Storehouse. What a great place...history and drinking combined. It doesn't get much better than that!
Thank you again Tyler Wilkinson and Pub 317 for this chance to have an amazing running and family adventure!!!
