After any months of training and planning it is the night before the marathon. Cynthia and Jeanne arrived in Greece on Thursday, Phyllis arrived Friday during the day. Kathy and I arrived last night. Our organizer, cheerleader and Athritis Foundation helper, Angelic is also on site.
After a lovely dinner at a nearby restaurant last night, we headed to bed around 11 pm local time. The good news is that we were all so exhausted that we did not mind going to bed 6 hours earlier than normal.
Today included touring the Acroplois, the National Museum Archaeological Museum. We also managed to get in a bit of shoe and jewlery shopping.
We also scoped out the ending spot for the marathon – tomorrow we will post the picture AFTER we finish.
So far we have raised over 33,000 for the Arthritis Foundation. Kathy claims to have a few checks on the way in to make it to 40,000 – but it sure would be nice to break 50,000. If you would like to donate to the arthritis foundation please go to our
