Seen on the streets of Houston during the '09 marathon: the Statue of Liberty carrying the American flag. Finish time: 4 hours, 32 minutes.
My husband took this photo at mile 16.
After picking up my shirt, I found my husband. He spent the last couple of hours chasing me around the race route!
We stopped at Luling's BBQ for lunch. I wore my finisher's shirt and someone asked about the marathon... How long is it?!
This year, the marathon shirt you receive at the expo is black (in the center of the photo). The finisher's shirts are either red or blue and look nice.
They had the new Under Armor running shoes there so I tried some on just to see what they're like. I wasn't impressed, but I only tried one style: the Apparition. The toe area was too big and bulky and I tried them in both size 7 and 8. The salesperson said it's comfortable that way. Maybe you're less likely to get black toenails when you wear them?
About my heel... It still hurts a little.
