Bull Session 3: TBR Dream Marathoners Longest Run

Sunday, 2 May 2010  |  Bullish Insights

We were all set for the longest run of TBR Dream Marathoners early this morning at NUVALI.

TBR Dream Team and NUVALI provided free transportation, water and Gatorade stations, mobile hydration stations, marshals and security, baggage check in, ambulance, portalets, showers, and a coach.  (Thanks to NUVALI and TBR Dream Team members Neville and Edward for the fantastic support!)

The runners, over 150 TBR Dream Marathoners and guests, came well prepared, too. They showed up bright and early for the 4:30 a.m. call time.  We started slightly late after a short briefing and proceeded with our 3 hour 15 minute run in four different pace groups through a portion of our marathon route.

This was one run that will be forever etched in my memory.  The sun was beating down on us, and some runners were challenged by the course, but the positive energy was palpable and the camaraderie among runners was invigorating.  TBR Dream Marathoners certainly DREAM BIG and RUN STRONG!


– Running with the TBR Dream Marathoners… –

– …is always something to look forward to…-



– But, chatting with each runner, one at a time… –

– …and getting to know other passionate runners…-

– …is priceless –



– The TBR Dream Marathoners are a fun, crazy bunch… –

– But, we’re serious about marathon training –

– We can’t wait for May 22, 2010 –
