2007 Official Finish Time (Chip Time): 2:25:43 ...11.1 min/mile average!!!
(Actual Time, 2:30:50)
Woo-hoo!! We beat our goal by almost five minutes! And we shaved off A FULL TEN MINUTES from our previous half-marathon time (2:35:37, Vancouver 2007). Wow, I am super impressed with myself.
And now for some pictures, from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer newspaper (our pics aren't in yet)
This is the half-marathon crowd running down 5th Ave at the start of the race. There were over 11,000 registered for all the events over the weekend.
Someone ran barefoot! You can see their pacer chip tied around one ankle (what's on the other ankle???). I have seen people running barefoot but never at a race or when the temperature was below 70. It is an incredibly strange thing.
Everyone gets a medal at the end! They are even kinda pretty. If you want, the volunteers will even put them around your neck for you.
