Half Marathon Race Day In Pictures

Thursday, October 28, 2010

Race Morning was simply beautiful!

On the way over, my daughter made a glove bunny, it was really cute!

We went out for breakfast before the race and there appeared ANOTHER glove bunny!

Waiting for the race, we arrived about 2 hrs early.....

No Motor Vehicles On The Island - All horse Drawn Carriages / Taxi's

Daddys Woo Hoo Crew!



Now for the moment you have all been waiting for..... The SHAMELESS FEAST!!

Instead of a racing t shirt, they got us a fleece jacket with the race logo - really cool!

There is it folks!, all the thrills and chills and fun you would expect out of yours truly (LOL). It really was a blast, If I had a camera, I would have had a finishing time of about 6 hours. It was sooooo beautiful. With the exception of the killer cramp attack, it was a perfect race.

Thanks for stopping by emoticon

    I wish my HM was so picturesque! Mine will be going through Tulsa, the city my dh and I lived in when we were newlyweds. I just can't imagine it'll be too breathtaking! emoticon

Congrats, again, on your HM!

    What stood out for me was your entire family - I can imagine the impact you've had on the kids and your friends who've seen you transform...we're ALL proud of you!
Then the fleece - well deserved for such a difficult race!
And the feast...hey, all that training, and then to finish - those calories don't count emoticon
Congrats again and thanks for sharing all the great photos with us! emoticon emoticon emoticon
