Last month I wrote about the Boston Marathon and mentioned the variety of body types and fitness levels of the many folks that were participating. This point rang true again last weekend as I ran in a race in Maryland. This event began as a fundraiser for a cancer treatment center and the participants range from cancer survivors to serious athletes raising money for a great cause and in honor (or in memory) of friends and loved ones.
