Cold Day for a Mobile Marathon

More than two thousand people showed up for the 15th annual Serv1st First Light marathon.  They were marching through midtown and downtown Mobile this morning.  Some runners say this is a sort of zen exercise.

I love running, it clears my mind and something I’m passionate about,” said Shannon Beale from Mobile.  There was a handful of runners with companions in tow.  Team Triumph is a nonprofit group that takes children and adults with special needs through races.  I talked with Keith Spain after he helped bring a young woman across the finish line.

“Tired, it was awesome Grace did fantastic, we were with her best friend for the first ten miles and she just said go and I said you’re the boss,” said Spain.
