Graduate students share 26.2-miles of memories

These two friends are doctor of physical therapy students at Winston Salem State. Hartman says that Brown talked her into running a 26.2-mile marathon after she had completed a Rock ‘n’ Roll half last year in November. After that race, Brown turned to Hartmann and asked, “Hey want to do a marathon with me?” To which Hartman replied, “Not really,” with a half-smile on her face. But Brown persisted and the two trained together and successfully completed Sunday’s marathon. “We kept each other accountable,” Hartman says. “Now we can take the marathon off the bucket list.”
