The pictures from the Mission Inn Run are up on the photographers' web site.
Since there were no actual pictures of me taken by my own camera, I might spring for one of these two pictures.
I think it might be cool to have one of these action shots of me in my awesome hot pink shirt. Well, I have the pictures but they have that water mark. I'm going to get one though. Why not?
This is at about the 2.5-mile mark. I can tell because my shirt isn't quite drenched with sweat yet. I was doing pretty well here, feeling good and strong.
This is at the same point during the second go-round, so I have about a half-mile to go, probably longer. I was doing well at this point, and trying to finish strong. But right about here was where I started to feel that if I would push myself hard, I wouldn't have much left for the sprint down the finish. I was in maintain mode.
One other thing: in looking at my time again, it seems I somehow improved my position in the overall male finishers. It seems that I now finished in 101st overall. Not sure what happened to finishers 101 and 102 as I'd originally finished 103rd. So now I was just a couple of seconds away from a medal.
