I made the Paper!!!!

As the new SuperHero called ...... Le Blur! (I'm the blur behind runner )



Did the Rochester Marathon (race official following Lead Female Full Marathon) Sunday Morning. Here's me crossing the finish line behind my charge, lead female full marathon. Lead changed 3 times - this little girl with no hips shocked me and really pushed it on because as I was following the leader - I looked back - and could see for a loooong ways there wasn't anyone. Then I looked back and there she was pouring it on. Her father was one of the ride marshalls - and who kept with her for the last several miles coaching her on. She ran it in 3:05, did one last weekend 3 hr flat. (Lead man did it in 2:30). I am LE BLUR behind her in yellow.

Oh yeah, and my camera died an unnatural cause (these are all newspaper photos). While on route I grabbed a couple of their handouts - gu packets and stuffed them in my only side pocket with the rest of my stuff. I took pictures the whole way (mostly of runner butts, hehe) and got my runner going to the finish line with her father beside her - and stuffed camera back in. Got home and discovered stupid Gu packet erupted - and the only essential part of the camera (where it docks/memory card) was sitting in the pile of Gu. Stupid stuff. It infiltrated camera - and it died. Salvaged my memory card though. grr.

Couple other pics.

I look forward to this event all year. But boy it was cold at 6:30 am when I left the house -- overcast - barely 40 degrees - I still had shorts on - and a jacket over a tank top and I was fine -- but it was my FINGERS --- argh I coulda used full finger gloves. They actually started to hurt - so I rode the first hour (till sun came out) alternating sticking my hands up my shorts.

Interesting attire fore some of the runners while warming up and waiting for race - Le Bag!



Starting Line, >2000 entrants including a couple of wheelchair racers --- one guy had some sweet ZIPP wheels on.

Isn't he funny? I had to do a double take on the caption in the newspapers photos - thought for sure they took a pic of one of our street peeps - until I saw the ankle strap.
