Recently, the City of Tuscaloosa sponsored the “Mayor’s Cup 5K Race.” Marysia ran and had a very good race — third overall woman and a time that almost beat her personal best. Plus, as this photo shows, she was this close to edging out the mayor, Walt Maddox. He’s the young guy in black. She’s a couple of runners behind him, in blue.
