Race Pictures!!

Here are the exciting race photos courtesy of marathonfoto.com (obviously). Stupid watermark.

There are a ton. I guess that's what happens when you stay to the side to do walk breaks, you get in every picture!

This is towards the start as you can see by the big-ass grin on my face.

This is what happens to your shirt when you try to run through a water stop.

This is the ONE picture I wish would have come out well (in front of Ohio Stadium on campus). Of course, we were taking a walk break!

This is the very last stretch to the finish (The part where I was crying like a big-baby!)

Not the best finishing picture. These girls in front of us stopped as soon as they crossed and we almost crashed into them.

Here is my proof that I finished. Get it?!?! "PROOF"!?!? Hehe, that joke never gets old.

A-Freakin'-dorable.
My fav is the "last stretch" action shot. In the final "proof" you don't even look tired or that you just RAN 26.2 MILES! Uhm HELLO.

Your pictures are awesome - I loooove the hand holding one. So sweet. And damn... your leg muscles in some of those! Don't mess with Laurel!

(& I love that you seem to have run a whole marathon with your sunglasses on your hat?? ;) )

Jess said...

Hi Laurel--

This is coming shamefully late, but CONGRATULATIONS on your marathon finish! Even though I only knew your first name, I tracked you anyway... and even figured out which of the two Laurel's you were. ;-) Loved your race report and you pictures are priceless. I hope you're sporting that post-marathon glow!
