Kyle's family gets into some crazy stuff. The latest- putting on the 1st EVER Petrified Forest Marathon. Kyle's city, Kathleen, works for the City of Holbrook and figured this would be a great thing for tourism since the Petrified Forest is only 30 minutes away and the road running through the forest is 26 miles long- it was just asking for a Marathon to go through it. Kyle volunteered for his choir kids to run the water stations and it worked out really well. We had 3 suburbans with 5 kids a piece and just dropped them off at the next water station and then leap frogged them after the runners had passed their water stations. The kids had a blast... until the wind picked up! Man oh man there was a lot of wind.
Our awesome choir supporters grabbed one water station.
It was a great event! I can't decide if I thought it was great because the only real preparation we had to do was to get another driver and get kids signed up to help- but Kathleen did amazing! It was an organized and super fun race to help with, we'll definitely be on the list to help again next year!
