I was surprised at the lack of people along this stretch of the route this year. In past years, it has been filled with children getting high-5s!
But, it was the ideal place to spectate. The 5k people passed us twice, the 10k people passed 3 times and the half marathoners came by once when they were in the homestretch.
I figured I'd share some pics from the day.
|JS was in a footrace with a coworker (she won...of course)|
|The fighter jet that flew over us a couple of times near the start of the race|
|My coworkers, Lynn and Leann|
|Me and Leigh|
|Yay for pompoms|
|JS coming back at the 8k(ish) mark of the 10k|
|Leigh and her maraca-pompom|
|My TNT buddies Lorraine and Fay (Fay came in 2nd in her age division)|
|Yes - this guy DID run the half shirtless in Jeggings and a cowboy hat. #brave|
|Really unfortunate shot of Heather...I was a bit quick on the shutter...|
|The race marshall who helped us cheer|
|One of our signs (since I totally forgot to take pics of the others)|
|Me and my pompoms|
|Me and Michelle|
It was so great to finally meet Leigh and Michelle. I've been bloggy/twitter friends with them for so long - it was really nice to finally make those friendships be real-life!
