Hey Tiff, yeah found everyone on the 5K finisher video, and saw the side of boB's orange shirt as he waited for you and Chris to finish.<br><br>
Here's Fox 6's local footage of the start. Looks really awesome.<br><br><a href="" target="_blank"></a>
Nah, the course looped back on itself and we went under a bridge. <img alt="smile.gif" src=""> (so they took the shot from the bridge)
Three days in a row. She wore it to school today!
Yeah, Big Al, musta been at the 'Bama basketball game. But, given our teams record, I'm not sure why. <img alt="sad.gif" src=""><br><br>
Yes, Aubie stood at the finish line to cheer on the kids. It was marginally cool from a 'Bama perspective. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="">
Full Marathon results (chip times)<br><a href="" target="_blank"></a><br><br>
Robert Mann - 3:47:27 (8:41 pace)<br><br>
Funny story about <b>boB</b> and his <b>boB</b>cam - (<b>boB</b> can give you the exact text mayb) but <b>boB</b> said that he heard the announcer say something like this when he was finishing:<br><br>
"Here comes Roberts Mann from ... New Jersey, all the way from New Jersey...Look Robert Mann is taking a picture of himself finishing the marathon!"
Just back from lunch with Chris, Beth and Tiff...they left from there to drive off in the direction of their homes. The weekend is officially over. But, man, what a fun time!<br><br>
Here's some great video of the elite marathon finish from yesterday:<br><a href="" target="_blank"></a>
I'm just sifting through the local coverage of the race (TV and newspaper) there's some good article posted on That's the website of the local paper.<br><br>
I didn't realize that the men's overall was this close. Those two non-kenyan guys almost caught the kenyan.<br><br>

Yeah, now that you mention it, I think that he was. I saw him post race at the party and awards. I think you can see him in the video coverage.<br><br>
BTW, <b>LL</b>, boB was telling me the story behing the sandbaggin quote...your performace at Philly versus what you said you'd do. Funny stuff.
Hi. Goodnight. I'm going to bed. I have a 7:00am flight in the morning. ugh!
OK, guys, get off the $hitter and write those race reports! Mine's posted in the finish line forum (that means you too Chris; you ran a race, now you have to report):<br><br><a href="" target="_blank"></a>
I just put all of mine in one race in front of the other.
