To win .... with 400 other competitors? THAT'S TRULY MAGNIFICENT.
I know jennyma! I think we were both surprized. I think they should give out a last place prize. I love watching those people who are just so determined to finish and have no interest in winning. It's great cheering for the last person who finishes, I think they get more applause and respect than the person who won. I like watching the races and seeing the determination in their eyes to finish. I like seeing them starting the run and running towards their son or daughter to give them a quick kiss before powering on.
