Taroko Gorge Marathon was a great time for our family
We went with about 24 people from church. arrived Friday Sept 3 and 5am Saturday morning we all hopped on a bus to the starting line.
The weather was perfect. Blue sky with a bit of Fall coolness.
The kids all ran/walk the 5K and Brian and I did the 1/2 marathon. You would never know it in the pictures, but Brian is very ill. He couldn't run the whole 22K but Nadine did!!
We all finished the race!!!
Taroko Gorge is a gorgeous tourist site on Taiwan's East Coast with lovely hiking trails and roads for car/bus tourists.

After the marathon we experienced the local culture and ate at a famous baodz (steamed dumpling) shop.
It was very busy and very yummy.
Our ride home was beautiful.
