Some Internet photo company named zing.com took pictures and posted the proofs to the internet, so of course I grabbed the image files to post here. My number is 41207, in case you don't know which one I am. Oh, and I guess it's obvious, but I was peer-pressured into doing this by guys at my company. On the plus side, though, bright yellow shirts make it really easy to keep together in a seething mass of humanity.
This is just to give you an idea of what a huge number of people
participate in this race. I don't think I'm in this picture, but you
get the idea. I didn't actually cross the starting line until about
15 minutes after they started the race because it was so crowded, and
I was told that was unusually fast. Jason, who has run it several
times, had once spent 40 minutes waiting to start.
Two pictures of us running. This is around the 6 mile mark, so we're
pretty tired by this point. Running with me are my boss, Jason Dunham
(#40718), and co-worker, Cem Kilicci (#40983).
Afterwards, we were pretty tired.
