Most working adults get a week or two away from their jobs each year — precious days spent vacationing on a beach, touring museums or just staying at home. Marshall’s Kathy Roche-Wallace isn’t like most people. The 52-year-old triathlete will, for the second time in three years, be spending her vacation pedaling coast to coast in the 2013 Race Across America or RAAM tour.
On June 11, 2013, Kathy Roche-Wallace, a Marshall resident, will begin her Race Across America (RAAM), which spans 12 states for a total of 3,000 miles and 12 days. She has competed in the event before in 2011 and hopes to have the same success as last time.
