I was so excited to find out these pictures existed! Thanks to Ryan Grubb of our local running club the Yellowstone Rimrunners for these. That lady in the red shirt and black hat is ...drum roll please... Joan Benoit Samualson, Olympic Gold Medalist in the marathon at the 1984 games in Los Angeles! Six people behind her in the white shirt...ME! I DID get my picture with her, and I was so bummed cause I thought I missed out.
I was feeling so great right here, this was right about the 2 mile mark. This is the ugliest part of the run with the fewest people in the crowd, so its good we get it over with right away. The last half is through some residential areas and there are more people to cheer us on. Even a yard sale or two if you feel like it.
No run for me today, taking a rest day and going to do a Bodyrock.tv workout. Hope everyone had a great Monday!

Great race photos, love how they caught you with what looks like a smile, that's a rare moment for me during races. I always end up with ridiculous facial expressions!ReplyDelete
