Pictures Of A Marathon

   I recounted my marathon tale in a previous post, but I had to tell the story again in pictures. I sill can't stop looking at these. It is surreal that I am a marathoner. I hope you enjoy them too. 
Photo opportunity at the packet pick-up. I love this. I think it shows how marathon training is a family affair.
Carb loading with this hot guy at Old Spaghetti Factory.

Carbs, 3-legged balloon cats, and Joshua. It was a great night.

Keeping warm with these lovely people.

Our in-depth conversation about poop while Joshua hung out in a porta potty pre-race.

It's getting light and close to race time.

My two favorite men.

Joshua looked all over to get a quality rubber ducky shirt and personalized his bib. That is true friendship.
And we are off! 

Trying to nip my blisters in the bud at mile 7.

Every race Joshua and I run together we have one of these pictures. We usually have several takes to get us both jumping at the same time.
Joshua showing off his duck shirt.

Sun's out, guns out with Time and Joshua.

Maybe this is because the other 99% isn't crazy?

I would rather see Mark or John Krasinski, but I would settle for Ryan.

Every canyon run has to have one of these pictures of Joshua and I.

Running with Dulcinea at mile 15.

The terrible out and back. Tim kept me laughing and the miles passing quickly.

Only a 10k left!

We found Dulcinea's sign for me at mile 21, right as the wall hit. Perfect timing to remind me why I do this.

Tight hamstrings and a tired brain forces a stretch pit-stop.

Just a couple of miles left.

Seeing Mark my first time as a marathoner.

Thanking Joshua for putting up with me.

After 6 hours and 42 minutes, I AM A MARATHONER!

One of my favorite pictures of the day. This is a cherished moment.

Three marathoners super sunburned but super happy.

    1. Me too. And there were so many for me to choose from thanks to lots of people who took a little time to take a few for me. I am a lucky gal.


Here on this blog, everyone is a friend. I would love to read what you have to say, just keep it polite and clean. And may the run be with you.
