Race report from Chris Pruitt:
" I'm writing to tell you about my first marathon!
Terry Etterman and I ran it together (literally) and both finished in 4:25. We
were just hoping to walk across the line with no injuries, so we really
exceeded our expectations by having such a fun time. The New River Marathon is in
Boone, and it was very well put together, well-marked, and there were great
volunteers at the aide stations--every two miles! The course was beautiful, and
nicely varied--mostly pavement, a lot of flat, but some good hills as well. It
was a great experience. Highly recommend it. I attached four photos my dad took
of us. The best thing was sitting in the cold river right after the race.
Perfect!! Oh, and by the way--notice the shirt I'm wearing! Someone on the
sidelines saw it and said, "Go Foot Rx! Yay, Asheville!"
Rush Austin also ran the New River Marathon, but had a tough outing finishing in 4:24.
