Leading Ladies Marathon

A lovely race in South Dakota.  All women!  Also mostly downhill.  It was also gorgeous.  Once again I was first in my age class.  Nice sometimes to be old!

I spent a few days with my friend Alyce who lives in Rapid City.  We did some great sightseeing to Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, and the Devil's Tower.

Danang Marathon

A very hot marathon, but a really nice course and wonderful race directors and volunteers.  It was 97 degrees with about 95% humidity.  There were water stops every mile which really saved the day.   I was not last but was very close to last.  But still got first in my age class.  I was the only person, male or female over 60.

After reaching the finish line!
Danang was an amazing city and I really enjoyed everything about it. So many fascinating sites.  I loved the Lady Buddha Statue and the Dragon Bridge the most.
