Illinois Marathon Pictures

I was able to get some pictures that Barbie took while we were in Champaign for the Marathon...

Here is a picture of the three of us with Bart Yasso at the Expo. This one was taken with a cell phone, so it's a little fuzzy.


Here is one of Barbie and me getting ready to leave our hotel room.

Here I am entering the stadium. Feeling great!

Here I am coming around the bend. I'm the little bright blue speck to the left of the goal post, with my arms in the air... they had just announced my name. Look how far I got ahead of the runner behind me!


And, finally, some pictures with the girls after my finish! Notice how I can't seem to wipe the smile off my face. I felt so fantastic!

I just read your race report (yep, I'm a day or two behind right now). Awesome. Just. Awesome. Under 5 hours? I bow to you!

I love your big smile at the end...well earned. Now go have a mimosa for me :-)

Those are great pics. I can feel the sense of accomplishment shine right through your smile.....I'd wear it for a while for sure!
