Music City Half Marathon!

“A year since Jabber did it?” Jabber pondered the very idea that time had passed so fast!

Yes, the Music City Marathon and Half Marathon was Saturday the 25th.  Whilst Jabber and the Brocanters were out sailing yards, about 27,000 of their closest friends were running/walking the marathons, including some of the Y-Knots!

Here are the courageous and successful walkers/runners for this year!  We are SOOO proud of them all!

  Racer Daughter and Leader’s daughter did it together!

  With Elvis!

  Here’s Leader with her running partner, Mac.

Below is Racer Daughter’s ‘bib’ worn during the race–note that she added “YKnotWannaBe” to her bib in honor of us older women known as the Y-Knots who have run/walked in prior years.  (This brought a tear to our eyes, Daughter.  Thank you!)

And some Y-Knot Llamas did it this year too!

(An explanation:  if you are a ‘woman of a certain age’, come to our workout class consistently, you ARE a Y-Knot because we all figure, well, why not?  We are also a very “tight” group–a ‘knot’ at the YMCA, hence, Y-Knots.  If you walk or run a half marathon and are a Y-Knot, you are automatically a Y-Knot Llama.  Because as we all know, Llamas are very persistent.  They will also spit at anybody who tries to “put them in their place”.  We won’t be categorized like that; we’re very persistent and determined…..And we can spit too….  Don’t you DARE patronize us as little old ladies!  There, that ought to fully explain the title.)

“Did anybody ever tell you that you are crazy?” Jabber inquired.

Of course.  I pay them no attention.  That’s what Y-Knot Llamas do.  We just keep on keepin’ on….

Close up of the medals and shirts this year!


A marathon is 26.2 miles; a half marathon is 13.1 miles.  A half marathon must be completed in 4 hours or under–and they all did it!
