And my pacing partner? None other than my husband, Rick! We ran a little of my first Rocket City marathon together 11 years ago (as friends, we were not even dating at the time!), and now we will run together as a husband/wife pacing team. I never would have believed we'd be doing this if you told me 11 years ago! I just love how the Rocket City Marathon holds so many memories for me, and we will be making more in less than a month! I am very thankful for the chance to pace with Rick and look forward to getting just under pace with his help this year (see my unsuccessful attempts at pacing below)!
