Dubai Runners - 1st of 7 Continent Marathons

Hi Arlene,
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for allowing Kristen to run yesterday!!  I can't tell you how thrilled we were to do our First Sector at home in Canada!!  I will make sure that all Press Releases include your Marathon details in it.
Check out the article from a Dubai newspaper regarding Kristen.
And it all started at the Hamilton Marathon Road2Hope!

I wanted to send a big shout out to the 4:15 pace bunny, Star. Having never run a full marathon before her advice and distraction were both very welcome and kept me from going out too fast.
In terms of the race organization, I was a little disappointed in the shirts. Having come in from out of town to pick up the race kit on Saturday, only to find only white race shirts left (my least favorite owing to the tendency to stain) and only in L and XL left was a disappointment. Not to be able to wear the race shirt from my first marathon is too bad (too big).

The race execution itself had no such disappointments...it was such a treat to stay warm before the race, the pacers were great, the aid stations well placed and at the finish line there were many to help out, keeping us warm and fed! Thanks for a great first experience!
