A Few More MCM Pics

I finally got the single-use camera down to the photo place for developing (next time I take a digital camera) so I just got a few more pics.




Here is the race shirt the night before. It says, "Life is an Adventure" on the front and "Bring it on!" on the back. The back also has my pace group time and my dedication to mom.



I found Miles in the Runner's Village before the race and got a picture with him!



Michelle was our 5 hour pace group leader.




Here we are just approaching the starting line - and just beginning to increase our speed past a walk.




Approaching the mall area in DC...



After finishing, the finisher's chute leads you toward the Iwo Jima Memorial. See the tall buildings way in the background. That is where you have to walk to get to bag pickup and the finisher's party.



A fellow runner I met with the 5 hour pace group at the beginning of the race. I lost him around mile 3 or so and found him in the finisher's chute.

I sure am going to miss the crowd support at Disney!

Excellent pics! Isn't it great to re-live it after the fact? I think so!

The pictures are great. Excellent job on your PR on the race. As a former Marine I am especially interested in that race. your accounts motivate me.

How fun to see those pictures!

If you decide to run with your IPOD at Disney, maybe prerecord some loud crowd cheering and play it during those lonely Disney miles and imagine you're running MCM? Visualization is a powerful tool in training and in racing.
