Part One...

May 30th, 2011

The Burlington Marathon

3 friends running, husbands and children watching, thousands cheering!

Meet two of the runners:  Mrs. Brianne Taylor and Mrs. Catherine Collette!

These girls (along with friend Roxanne who is not pictured) trained for 16 long weeks to participate in a most inspiring event; a run spanning 26.2 miles.  How Amazing are they??

To get ready, CARBS!

Like running wasn't enough for Ms. Cat this weekend, she also hosted a carb load party to prepare everyone for the day ahead.  Homemade spaghetti with sauce and a local organic salad brought by her darling sister.

Friends and family joined in on the meal and spoke of the training, the nerves and the utter excitement that was buzzing around!

Cheers to the participants!

  T-shirts were presented to show encouraging support!  Mr. Witt and I were lucky enough to receive on of these to wear on race day.  Pictures will be shown later!

The girls were also presented with a certificate for drinks that they may enjoy after the race; we all know they will be needing one!

I was so thrilled to have my mother joining us for this big weekend.  Athletic events like these are right up her ally and the more excitement the better!  She helped with packing up necessities, getting out the door in the wee hours of the morning, and keeping up morale with the Witt spectators of the smaller kind!

The evening was winding down and all went home for some much needed rest before the major event!
