Pic 1: Helloooo Mud-Monster. The second picture shows what my Nike-Free's USED to look like. Siiighhh. I've got MOST of the mud off, but I'm afraid they'll never be the same again :( You can't tell in this picture (too early in the race) but after a few falls, the mud extended to my torso as well as up and down my arms. Scratching my face became a serious challenge!
This was actually one of the few areas on the course that was pretty dry.
Pic 2: Remember the Marthon-Pup I
stalked err-- mentioned in my last post? Well APPARENTLY this is a BLOGGING-Marathon pup! Check out Pavlov's view of the marathon from a doggie perspective! Too cute. Also, just in case her owner hasn't filed a restraining order quiet yet on me, I've attached a picture of Pavlov/Belle with her Dad during the marathon...
You get a better image of just how 90% of the course looked!
