Some Pocono Marathon Pics

About to start...

Ok, so first off, these are still watermarked and owned by VIP Studios.  I do plan on ordering a couple official copies in the next day or two.  This is what I could find for now, but they are still posting new pictures, so there may be more.

Checking pace-band coming in to mile 13

Feeling strong at Mile 13

Tucked in nicely at the half-way point.  It was here when I realized I was running too fast.  I clocked in here at 1:35:00

At the finish, I held up while this other runner crawled across the finish.  He qualified for Boston with 13 seconds to spare...and on his knees.  Now that's some determination.

Waiting patiently for him to finish...

And then I trotted across the finish.  Don't let the smile on my face fool you.  I was hurting pretty badly.

Oh wow, the crawl. Reading about it in your report was one thing, but seeing it...! As for your race, well done, and nice of you to wait for dude to get across the line. I probably would have felt the pull of the merciful finish too strongly to do that.

Thanks for posting this. I was thinking about this one as I trained for Boston 2015.

Good luck in your races.
