2013 Myrtle Beach Marathon
The Myrtle Beach Marathon has been a tradition with the Petrino family for quite a few years now. Early on the family used to take part in the relay marathon where 5 members would each run a leg of the 26.2 miles. It was a blast! Unfortunately the relay marathon was removed from the race and it is now just the half and full marathon only. Regardless, someone in the family usually runs one of the 2 races each year, and we all come together and support them! This year it was my sister in-law, Marianne, who ran the marathon. TJ ran about 8 of the miles with her, helping her pace and encouraging her along the way. What a great big brother! She made amazing time and we were all so proud of her. Throughout the race I was on the sidelines cheering at different mile markers and taking photos along the way. Maybe someday I will run the half??
