Race Photos

The race photos are up.  A few came out ok, but nothing worth paying for the full size.  I like the one of me standing on the finish line.  It was a bittersweet moment.  I finished, and was happy by that, but seeing my time and knowing how close it was to being so much better was disappointing. 

Gritting my teeth and pushing through the pain. Running well and loving it! Just a Movin'  Enjoying the walk break.  I believe this was before the pain started.The ying and yang of the finish line. Kicking it!

Ah James,

A day, sun, blue sky, and you are alive and able to race and people you care about are out there rooting for you.

That sounds good to me! Don't feel bad...you did great!

Keep the photos...someday they'll be a kick. Next time even better!

@Jen, he was referring to the other photo with a lady.

@Paul, it was an awesome day. I was grinning like a kid in a candyshop up until the pain hit.

You did a great job! It was your first one. You also had so many setbacks that you could have used as excuses, but you persisted through those obstacles. You're determined and passionate...very admirable qualities to possess, and you are a true runner. Look how quickly you moved from just starting to run/walk short distances years after your cross country days to now doing a 10 mile race (longer than you ever did back in the day). *sending you a BIG huge and high five*
