So I spotted a nice man taking photos right around mile 13 of the Rochester Half Marathon about 10 days ago. I talked to him briefly afterwards, and found out his name was Thom. Here are 5 of his photos.
I mentioned Ruth passing me around mile 3 in my race report, and she went on to take 2nd OVERALL in 1:19!!
Ruth kicking butt!
I was passed by Joe when I stopped to walk, and shortly after that I mentioned being passed by a "super buff tan dude" who I found out was from Arizona. Here's a photo of Joe, and that's super buff dude in the background!
Joe with buff, tan, Arizonian behind him. His pecs (even when out of focus) cast a nice shadow.
Anyway, my suffering was slightly worth it because I was sent my "age group" award a few days after the race. (I couldn't stick around because I needed to get home and watch Henry so Momma could get in a workout too!) Actually, Jeremy and I BOTH got 3rd in our age groups, so we both got a nice plaque:
And my wife just signed up for her 2nd 50K! She'll be doing that in Oct, 3 years after doing her first 50K!
Sometimes I think we're crazy.... :)
