San Francisco Marathon: In Pictures

This is the best thing I've seen in the aftermath of the San Francisco Marathon.

One of the thousands of runners on Sunday took his camera - a very expensive camera - with him during the race and took pictures throughout the marathon. He sacrificed a lot to do this, but the payoff was fantastic.

Toky of Toky Photography put up the best race recap you could ever hope for with his photo essay. See the essay here.

Some things of interest:

> He confirmed that the park pretty much was the worst part. I didn't even get lost there, but apparently there was confusion. Had I gotten lost I would have disliked the park even more.

> Toky snapped one picture of me! I'm in the background. Can you find yours truly? I'll give you a hint - it's early.

> Toky also ran with a hobbled ankle. That he finished (in 5:52) is testament to his own courage and strength. Imagine running with a bad wheel and carrying an expensive camera around your neck.... and, oh yeah, your run is 26.2 miles.

What an awesome photo essay! I wish he would come to Chicago. Is it weird that I get a little emotional reading marathon race recaps even though 1. I wasn't there and 2. I haven't run a marathon yet? Hope you are enjoying your recovery/down time.
