View from our hotel room. This bridge was at mile 2.<br><img alt="" src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2115/2320231951_f4157d9ecf.jpg?v=0" style="border:0px solid;"><br>
Alltel Stadium, where the Jacksonville Jaguars play. We started outside of it and got to finish on the field.<br><img alt="" src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3191/2320046284_b499cbf6c2.jpg?v=0" style="border:0px solid;"><br>
Staying out of the <i>wind</i> before the race<img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">.<br><img alt="" src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3213/2321076070_dba80246dc.jpg?v=0" style="border:0px solid;"><br>
Hanging out before the start in the new <span>orange top</span> and arm warmers.<br><img alt="" src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2138/2321070810_b0f7e2f7e4.jpg?v=0" style="border:0px solid;"><br>
Great organization at the front. 1-200 elite start, 201-1500 seeded and then the other 14,000 plus. They were really strict and it went so smoothly.<br><img alt="" src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2113/2321048696_be9b3fa7bb.jpg?v=0" style="border:0px solid;"><br>
Mohawk guy. He was right behind me most of the race (I could hear people cheering for him) and then passed me around mile 7 or so and finished just ahead of me. Pretty funny.

Deena in the lead right from the start, about 200 meters out. The top 25 women started 5 minutes early, there was a $5,000 bonus to the first person to cross the finish line. Deena won it last year (she was over 2 minutes quicker last year, too--weather/wind), this year a few guys passed her on the bridge.<br><img alt="" src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2014/2320239055_48bee75803.jpg?v=0" style="border:0px solid;"><br>

...much later...here I come.<br><img alt="" src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3128/2319260525_9618390414.jpg?v=0" style="border:0px solid;"><br>
Me, again<br><img alt="" src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2178/2320074952_9cd2491ba1.jpg?v=0" style="border:0px solid;"><br>
Jumbotron of me finishing...that was cool.<br><img alt="" src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2283/2319265351_f3898e57ed.jpg?v=0" style="border:0px solid;"><br>
Look at the pure amount of people still running over the bridge(both levels). This was about 10 minutes after I finished and it went on like this for an hour more!<br><img alt="" src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2120/2320080450_2c6584e7e6.jpg?v=0" style="border:0px solid;"><br>
Zoom out of the last bridge.

Wow Jen! That's great! I think a 1:06 is a fantastic time for a 15k! That's about 30 seconds faster than my RP ran her 15k in, and she's a fast girl! I think you're going to have a great Boston!<br><br>
Those are some fantastic photos too! The one of Deena kicking it at the end - she looks so smooth, it made me think of Spirit of the Marathon, when she finished Chicago strong!

Hey Jen,<br>
I was right behind you in the corral. I remember the orange top and black arm warmers. I was one of the fools going shirtless!<br><br>
Great Race!

Fantastic job Jen!!!! And great pictures. I was down at that stadium in October of last year, hitting a Jags game and visiting some friends.

Nice run Jen and great pictures. Wow, you're flying. Looks like all your hardwork is paying off. It should set you up nicely for a great race at Boston.<br><br>
I thought I recognized a couple of Minnesotans. Andy won the overall race and Katie finished 2nd in the women's. Minnesota in the house. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Thanks guys--DH is becoming a pretty damn good race photographer!<br><br>
Love the <span>orange top</span>--more coverage than just a regular bra top and easy to spot. The arm warmers were great, these ones are very, very thin. I just pulled them down to my wrists around mile 3 when I warmed up.
