My name is Ron & this is my story!
Having run all of the Myrtle Beach marathons, I really wanted to do this one too. I was ill, untrained, old and overweight but started it anyway. I got to the 20 1/2 mile mark and had severe hamstring cramps. There was a water station there, and I think it was a church sponsored one, not an official one. They could tell I was in trouble and a kind gentleman there offered to drive me anywhere I wanted to go. I wanted to continue and he walked with me for a half mile where I said I wanted to "tough it out." He offered to walk with me as long as I needed him but eventually I convinced him to return to his aid station. That is why I love Myrtle Beach!!!
When I finished, no other than the race director himself, drove me to my car in his golf cart!!
What a great support group for a wonderful marathon.
