stunning finish line photos

Wednesday, October 09, 2013

Since Sunday's marathon, I have experienced intense moments of pride. And equally intense moments of disappointment. And that is exactly why I will do it again someday. The range of emotions makes me feel alive.

These pictures capture those feelings better than any words ever could:

I passed the man in the last photo. On the back of his shirt was a sign: 80 years old.

Isn't life beautiful?
