GO! St. Louis marathon runners (and cheerleaders) posts to social media Live
What almost as fun as running a marathon? Posting about it on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook!

Just finished my playlist for tomorrow's #gostl run. Super nervous, but so ready to complete such a challenge. Wish me luck, I'll need it.
