Anna's commentary: Thanks so much to by biggest and best supporters!!! (No offense to the rest of my fantastic supporters, it's just that I've known my parents a little longer). :) They were a huge support at my first marathon in Arizona. Had it not been for all of the hard work and support of my family during that race it would not have been nearly as amazing of an experience!
