Jay residents Mark and Susan McGee ran in the half-marathon competition at last Saturday’s Pensacola Marathon. In the photo, the couple is shown with friend and co- participant Michelle Kelson.
The McGee’s started training for the 13.1 mile event 3 months ago and spent later weeks running up to 5-10 miles a day – ¬†all over the City Park and downtown areas in Jay.
Susan stated that “I am so proud of my husband – he’s gone from quitting a 2-pack a day cigarette habit, on February 11, 2011 to running 13.1 miles. “She added – this year was just to prove to ourselves we could do it. Next year we will hopefully improve our technique and speed.”
