Missoula Dentist Participates in the Missoula Marathon
The Missoula Marathon is a perfect example of what makes living in Missoula so awesome. The town really comes alive during the Marathon weekend. Downtown is hopping, Caras Park is full, and there is a feeling of excitement in the air. The team at Nelson Dentistry was so glad to have been a part of this year’s event and we highly recommend participating. There is a race for most fitness levels. Full Marathon, Half Marathon, 5k, Children’s Marathon and even a Beer Run. Or, if you absolutely don’t want to run or walk you can head downtown and support the runners at the finish line. It’s very inspiring!
