At the toughest uphill part of the course, Darlene was amazed and delighted to see two familiar faces cheering her on from the sidewalk, Andre and Jacqueline Letullier, Francoise's cousins. "We've just got to go and support her," Jacqueline had told Andre. "I felt so touched that they would come," Darlene said. "I couldn't believe it--I felt such incredible joy to see them, I can't describe it. At that point, I was in shock that I would have to run the entire course twice. But I knew I had to do it, because they would be there to cheer me on when I went by again."
