Each year we head back to Green Bay, Wisc. for the Cellcom Marathon weekend. This race is close to our hearts for so many reasons, but most importantly because it’s where the story of Fellow Flowers took its roots. It was just four years ago when our fourteen ‘Originals’ clipped orange gerber daisies in their hair and hit the streets of this city for those infamous 13.1 miles. We go back each year to honor our beginnings and to celebrate the entire journey of Fellow Flowers.
What a weekend it was! This race sure does it right and never lets us down. It’s family friendly, welcoming and makes it so easy for its vendors, participants and spectators to get around. To say there were flowers blooming everywhere we looked (5K and kids races on Saturday, half and full marathon on Sunday) is an understatement. Hundreds and hundreds of flowers pounded the pavement. We loved seeing so many familiar faces, talking with women, meeting new ones and seeing groups of ladies rocking their new summer tanks throughout the course. The sheer excitement from participants of all ages was simply contagious.
