A college friend of mine stayed with me this weekend to compete in the 13.1 Miami Beach 1/2 marathon. I first met Dawn Ellis, now President of DME & Associates in Burlington, VT (a consulting firm that “improves public good work through research, creativity, and technical assistance” ) when we were freshmen at Yale many moons ago. Through the years we’ve kept in touch at reunions and alumni gatherings and also in my hometown, Kennebunkport, Maine because Dawn is married to fellow Eli John Novotny with whom I went to high school in Kennebunk…..yes, a small world!
Anyway, Dawn has been training to run her first 1/2 marathon for months and emailed me to say she was coming down from snowy Vermont to run the Miami Beach 13.1 race. And she completed the race in just 2 hours 21 minutes beating her previous practice run time by 13 minutes. Congrats Dawn!
