Equinox Marathon

Smiling Trevor--he was the talk of the race because he grinned for the entire 26 miles. He decided to run the race last minute with very little training and whizzed through the course.

The equinox marathon was this weekend. We forecasted rain for race day and fortunately the timing was off and the drops didn't start to fall until most people had finished. I decided to just run the relay this year with Scott from Anchorage and a friend of his. I got to run the first relay leg so this gave me the opportunity to watch a good portion of the race and see a bunch of friends finish the grueling 26 miles over very hilly terrain.

Kristen cruises along at mile 23--she kicked ass and came in third place amongst the women.

Scott exchanges the bib with Steve for the final 9-miles back to the University. Each leg of the relay is about 9 miles long. Steve has a long and painful decent down to the finish.
Scott is happy now that the long climb up and over Ester Dome is over
Still smiling--Jim's got a bloody nipple. Trevor planned ahead and lubed up his nipples with vaseline to prevent chafing.
