Martin's Race, Gwen's Birthday Pix

Saturday, September 14, 2013

The scene before Martin's (my nephew) race:

Here's Martin in black/grey as he lined up for the race:

Part of the course as I waited for the first finisher to arrive:

The finish line before sunset:

Martin finishes the first of 4 races in 24 hours:

I was on my 11 mile training run while Martin ran his second race of the series, but I caught him on his 3rd race finish, a 2-miler:

Martin at Gwen's party, telling his sister about his race:

Gwen delighted when we all sang Happy Birthday to her:

It's been a great morning!!

    I can't believe how big Gwen looks in the picture! I love her expression - you caught it perfectly! Martin's time looks like it improved over the day. Is that correct? He is doing an amazing job and is very lucky to have you in his corner!

    Looking good, Martin! So proud of you, from a distance (make sure you pass that along... he has Spark-fans!)

And Happy Birthday, Gwen. My goodness she's looking grown-up!
