FOXYSDEN SPRING MARATHON NEWSLETTER 2013
written by Keylalah
What is a Marathon? The best definition I could come up with that did not have to do with foot racing was this, "an activity that takes a long time to complete and needs a lot of energy and determination".
This is a very good definition of what Foxysden Marathons are all about. We schedule our Marathons from Monday through Sunday night, beginning at 2pm in the afternoon and the last tour of the day beginning at 10pm.
It does take a lot of energy and determination to structure one of these events, and to see it through. Our staff had lots of determination to make this the best Marathon yet! And they succeeded!
The energy and determination of our members was quite evident in the turnout we had for this 7 day, 8 hour a day, fun filled extravaganza!
I am excited to let you all know who won what during this major event held by Foxysden League. It all started out with "Let the Marathon begin..."
First off, Cris and I would like to thank the staff for an excellent job well done! All tours went smoothly and the giving from your heart was awesome and much appreciated!
