Cheering Racers on at the Bayshore Marathon

Our countdown for the 2014 Bayshore Marathon is over and many are already planning for next year.

Since February we followed runners from the group “Running Fit” as they prepared both physically and mentally for the big race.

Neither snow nor rain stopped the trainees from training for the Bayshore Marathon that took place last Saturday.

The group says they quickly became a family of runners, cheering each other on to the very end.

“We took off from the school and the half came toward us and it was nice to see them as we were going out they were coming back and we were high-fiving each other, cheering each other on,” said Rose Coleman who ran the Bayshore Marathon. 

The Running Fit coach tells us that many of the runners finished the race with a personal best.
