State #25: New Jersey, Jersey Shore Marathon

This was an emotional marathon for many marathoners after the Boston Marathon.  Several runners that could not finish Boston were able to run the Jersey Shore Marathon.  The marathon community is stronger than ever.

The Jersey Shore was still under construction since Hurricane Sandy hit.  It was sad to see how much destruction and impact it had on business and residential areas.

The highlights of this marathon for me were meeting Sutah (DIVA #1) and finding a first time marathoner, Loren, and helping her to the finish line from mile 8 and on.
