I've never bought professional pics from a race before, but I figured for my first marathon it was kind of a given that I had to. Right?
On with the show...
These two are right after we came back to the US through the tunnel. You can kind of see the sign in the background that says "Welcome back to the USA".
I had just spotted my parents and started waving at them like a mad woman. I didn't even notice the photographer! They're probably my favorite pics because I still look fresh and happy.
|Oh yay! Now I can get my water bottles!|
This one was over on Belle Isle, where it was windy as heck. This was probably the hardest part of the race for me because I was tired and although the end was near, it still felt pretty far with 5-6 miles yet to go.
But I kept smiling! I don't know why, but there were like 10 pics of me from this portion. I can't remember if there were 2 photographers over there, or if the one just really thought I was great.
Finally, the finish line is in sight! I'm trying to power down to the line here, but I didn't have a whole lot more to give.
Done! Definitely the best feeling EVER.
