Mercedes Marathon 2010

clipped from

I spent the morning of Valentine’s Day as “reigning royalty” at Birmingham’s prestigious Mercedes Marathon. I manned the coffee station of “The Royal Mile,” our company-sponsored mile. With snow still on the ground in places, we braved the cold temperatures to serve coffee and donuts as a record ten thousand runners whizzed by.
As the 23rd mile of the full marathon, it took some time to see the front runner. Coffee was really popular during the brisk morning hours, with both spectators and runners alike. Surprisingly, I served as many donuts to the runners as to the spectators!
