Park City Marathon - Marathon #71

This year Park City Marathon aim was to showcase their beautiful areas of Park City. The course was scenic with rolling hills, surrounding mountains, beautiful trails and paved bike paths. This was my 3rd year walking Park City Marathon and my best. No altitude sickness and I beat my time by 4 minutes. I finished happy 6:14:52.

There were many Maniacs including Guinness World record holder Larry Macon.

I see Larry from Salt Lake City at most of my west coast marathons. Larry is celebrating his 40th lifetime marathon at 69 years young. Congrats Larry! The fabulous Beiyi was present. I met the awesome maniac deaf runner Dotty and my buddy Val was there too.

Gail from Park City is power walking her second marathon. It was nice meeting you Gail. Kurt MM# 2554 is vacating in Utah. Good to see you!

Never let anyone change your mind about what you feel you can achieve. Be true to the light that is deep within you. Hold on to your faith, hope, and joy for life. Keep good thoughts in your mind and good feelings in your heart. Keep love in your life, and you will find the love and light in everyone. Be giving. forgiving, patient, and kind. Have faith in yourself. Be your own best friend, and listen to the voice that tells you to be your best self. Be true to yourself in the paths that you choose. Follow your talents and passions; don't take the roads others say you must follow because they are the most popular. Take the paths where your talents will thrive - the ones that will keep your spirits alive with enthusiasm and everlasting joy. Most of all, never forget that there is no brighter light than the one within you. Follow your inner light to your own personal greatness.

When your dreams become your life and your life becomes your dreams you begin to see God all over them.
