Our grandson, D’mitri, is running in the Los Angeles Marathon on Sunday, March 15. I switched my schedule around in order to be there. The course takes runners from the Dodger Stadium all the way across Los Angeles (26 miles!) and finishes in the scenic area just steps from the Santa Monica Pier. D’mitri with other participants have been coached since September for this race. Just finishing is remarkable. There will be fully staffed aid stations along the route with Water and Gatorade beginning at mile 2 and ending at mile 25. Whew.
