Wow – I’m not sure which is more fried from the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon, my brain or my body? Either way, I just don’t have it in me yet to share with you my full marathon recap (though I promise I’ll do that for you early next week). In the mean time I’d like to share with you the pictures from the race. The race photographers from www.marathon-photos.com did such an awesome job of being in just the right spot to capture all the joy and pain of running a marathon that I just couldn’t resist sharing them with you here, along with a few other pictures that I took myself:
Here I am excitedly waiting in the corral with my best running friend, Juliette. She was a trooper and ran the first half of the race with me.
The wait to cross the start line was so long!
Here we are at 15k – just before Juliette and I lost each other.
Half way – I got this!
Somewhere near 30k – this is easy this is fun….
I have no idea where this was taken but apparently I was still having fun…
39k – I can’t do it. How am I ever going to get home?!?
Screw it – I’ll just walk the rest of the way.
40k – I think I can, I think I can….
(Is that guy’s name actually Connie?)
41k – One foot in front of the other… keep going!
42k – There’s the finish line! Wave to the camera….
Yeeeeaaahhhh!!!!!! I did it!!!
Finished!! Official chip time: 4:26:38
Tears of complete happiness.
Officially a marathoner!
