I have to say that as a spectator I was so impressed with Elisabeth and Monica. Not only did they train hard for this day, but they also completed a race in crazy weather and beat the 3 hr mark goal they had set for themselves.
George, Regin, Stacey, Jeff, and I mapped out our spectator course and decided to cheer the bunnies on from the 4, 9, and a little after the 12 mile markers as well as the finish line. I think Regin and I were the warmest of the group probably because we were bundled up and had umbrellas keeping us dry. I mapped out how much I walked on Sunday and it ended up being about 3.85 miles.
It was really cool to see participants of all types. I came away with the belief that I have no excuse for not doing it. We saw people in wheelchairs as well as an individual with a stroller in front of them and in the stroller was some breathing equipment (oxygen tanks, etc.). Whoa! No excuses.
George mentioned that he was going to train to do a 5k with Elisabeth and I was inspired to train for one as well. I found some, but that's for a future post. Here are some of the images of Elisabeth and Monica from their 1/2 marathon on Sunday! Click the images to see them larger.
