Lil' sis Frankie has got a lot of catching up to do, but she made a very credible first time try at stalking a obscure athlete. (above) She is pretending to not pose for a picture with the Men's winner of the half (who also set the American record for the 50k that morning). He is so obscure I don't know his name. She does get extra points for running a fast half, 1:44:10. We get it Frank, you're fast...go do some push-ups.
Here she is post race, yes, that's beer (free!) water, frozen yogurt, energy drink.
I also participated in a bit of pre-race stalk myself. Managed to get some pictures of my friend/running partner (in my head)/Olympian Kara Goucher, who was racing her first race after having a baby on Sept. 25. Sept. this year, yep, she managed to throw down 1:14:02 for second. I too could throw down a 1:14...granted that would be a 10k, but still....Runner, baby *high-fives a thousand angels*
