Quick side-note: I heard that Gary Westlund from Charities Challenge was set up at the turn-around point of the half marathon last weekend. But being we were turned around too soon because of a mis-informed volunteer, we never got to see Gary, or his tent, or hear his cheers, or have him take photos of us. I'm not too disappointed in the shortened race, but I feel bad that Gary spent all morning waiting for runners who never came by!
I stopped by the Charities Challenge website yesterday, and I saw that Gary had posted his photos from the indoor 5000 meter race that I did last month. So I thought I'd share 10 of those:
There are 3 things to note in this first photo: I'm to the far left finishing my second lap, (SPOILER ALERT) the eventual winner is in the middle, and you can see the clock read 1:13 as I took my first 400 a bit hard:
After a few more laps
Getting ready to pass some runners mid-race
Tri/running buddy Sean leading a pack
The winner (to the left) finishing in 16:10!
Nearly done with lap 24, with 1 to go!
Getting ready to hit my watch with 1 lap left
Swinging wide to finish
That's some hurt on my face....
Gary's photo of some of the speedster sprinters!
Time to edit a video from all of the clips I took while running the half marathon last weekend. I'll be back with that next week, and hopefully a quick giveaway. Happy weekend, everyone!
