On April 16, 2007, Cheryl Monroe & Robin Smith participated in one of the worst weather situations for the Boston Marathon. The 26.2 mile course was flooded by the 24-hour rains that preceded the event. Though they bagged their feet & even changed shoes at the start, they were still pretty soaked. Despite the cold temps of 45-degrees, along with intermittent rain (after the start) & strong (50-mph) "in-your-face gusts," quoted by Robin, they endured to the end with no regrets. Cheryl completed her 2nd Boston with a time of 3 hrs. 56 min. 41 sec., the same exact time she finished when she ran Boston in 2000. Robin, close behind, finished her very 1st Boston Marathon with a time of 4:01:50. All of the members of the Okefenokee Track Club would like to congratulate you both for a very memorable Boston Marathon!
