Wasn't expecting this picture to be taken by my friend Dale, especially as we are leaving out of the driveway at 5:15 am.
Race Finish at sunrise
Just the start of a very hot run!
The F-ing Stairs
These are the first set of stairs that you run up within the first mile. Just after these, you turn the corner and have a steep hill to run up. Thank you very much!!!
The finish line...kinda
This is where you run from the water to the stairs (see the runner), but it is also the last corner before running down the water's edge to the finish!
Well....this is eye candy!
Gotta love my photographer/jockstrapper providing me with a great view of the "spectators" that were out on the course.
Lane still trying to finish
Renee (rrizzo) finishing
Me and Renee (rrizzo)
Renee, Chris (Trigods), & unkown friend of theirs
After the finish down by the fountains (and the f-ing stairs)
Being handed a beer by a fellow BTer at the finish......
Chris (Cbost) finishing
Lane and Elane
My good friends named their daughter after me....she goes by her first name of Madalyn. This was the first time I had seen her since a few months after she was born, so we had to get a few pics together for her family...and of course, for me too. What a cutie! Good thing she got her family's looks and only my name!
