As you look back on June 5th, 2016, you may recall a cold and very wet day. Don't you believe it! Everyone who participated in the 25th Annual Covered Bridges Half Marathon will tell you it was a spectacular day! Sure, it rained (and it rained a lot) but that didn't dampen the enthusiasm of the TeamAlzheimers runners. They showed up with a smile and 13.1 miles later, they crossed the finish line still smiling!
I arrived a little before 6:30, and with the incredible assistance of team photographer (and daughter) Wendy Plante, who gives me so much support, I was quickly set up inside the charities tent and ready to go. I'm thrilled I was able to meet many of you. Over the course of the last six months, you have shared your touching reasons for running as a member of this team, and I was so happy to finally put a face with the name!
To each and every one of you, A Very Big THANK YOU! To some it was your first half marathon, to others it was your first charity team. For whatever reason you decided to be a part of TeamAlzheimers, I am very grateful. We cannot do what we do without people like you. You are, quite simply, the very best!
