Woooooooooooooooo!

Time-honored post-race tradition: Steal the low-res versions of your race photos from the professional sports photographer's website, rather than shelling out for the high-res ones. Herewith the photoset.

oh, that explains why I looked at those photos earlier, I thought "gee, it's a shame all these photos are such low res."

Courtney: Ben, look, it's a picture of Lindsey and Alex crossing the finish line in 4 minutes and 57 seconds.
Ben: It took them that long to cross the finish line?
Courtney: No, to do the whole marathon.
Ben: Less than five minutes to run a marathon?
Courtney: Oops. I got my units wrong, but the numbers are right.

Although I guess you actually did even better than I thought, now that I think about it. I'm impressed.

That's the funniest conversation ever!

Incidentally, though, the numbers aren't right, because that clock started when the first runner started running, and we didn't cross the starting line until well after that (since there were many thousands of people running and it took a while to herd them all across the starting line!). So our actual time from starting line to finish line was 4 hours, 39 minutes, 45 seconds. Woohoo!

Does one marathon just about wear out a pair of running shoes?

Are you offering to buy new ones for us? *winning smile*

Hm, let's see. By "ones" do you mean individual shoes, so that "ones" could mean ONE pair? And by "us" are you referring to your 2 feet??

Oh, just giving you a hard time. Actually, I alternated pairs of shoes during training, and both pairs are worn but neither pair is worn out. They'll be good for another marathon, I think. I wore the same pair in 2005 and 2006 and for all of the running I did in 2007. When I finally threw them out, the inner part of the heel was basically entirely gone (because I overpronate -- my feet roll inward too much).

Wasn't there some doctor in your past who said you'd never be a runner? What balderdash (if I'm remembering that correctly). BTW, look for two birthday pieces of mail still to come, one from A & K, one from me.

Wow! I had forgotten all about that, but now that you bring it up, I think I remember someone saying that.

You'll never be a runner; you'll never be a computer scientist -- gee whiz, if authority figures keep saying things like this, I might have to start questioning authority or something!
