Philly Marathon 09

A photo race report...

The shirt.

I designed the ad in the inside front cover of the race program this year.

The look of someone who is about the qualify for Boston.

Sorry Bill, by the time I realized it was you, this is all I got.

I love this guy's face.

I see him!!

He ran up and kissed my belly :)

Poor guy.




Is the guy on the left eating a cheesesteak?!?!

Here he comes!

Too tired to wave.

Too cool for school.

J and his parents.

All in all, it was a great day. The weather was beautiful and it looked like a fantastic day to race. J did great for having a bum leg and just running for fun (4:15). Of course I'm sure he wishes he could have done better, but I think he did amazing. It was his 7th marathon and his 3rd fastest time! I'm so proud!

Congrats to all you runners out there today. I'm glad I got to see so many of you in action. You all looked amazing!

I love the pictures!! I've been so out of the blogging loop lately, I didn't even know you're going to have... a girl! Or any baby, for that matter.

Awesome report! These pictures are fantastic - I finished right around that Star Wars guy :)

It was great to see you out there yesterday. With all the people I knew on the course and spectating, you were actually one of only a few familiar faces I saw in the crowds. A huge boost!

Wow, great pics Laurel - I finished between J and Bill. I wish I had know you were there taking pics, I would have told you to look out for my ugly yellow hat. Love Jeremy's shirt!

This makes me really miss running with you two! We'll have to pencil in Philly one of these years. :o)

Loving J's shirt. His hair is looking more manageable and has a nice sheen. Has he started using a new product?
