More Sounds and Sights from the MDI Marathon

I'm in denial that Sunday is truly over, so here are a few more sights and sounds from the marathon.  If you missed the day before recap and the marathon race recap check them out, here and here.

Making fun of me, we're pretty sure, about the ocean. You had to be there!

As you can tell by our faces, Crystal and I truly love the marathon

One lucky part of having my parents there as our supporters was that my dad took some videos of us out on the course! Here are a few for your viewing pleasure!

Around mile 11.5

Still going strong at about 18 miles

Mike's finish!

Finishing up the race with Isaac

And I LOVE LOVE LOVE this photo collage that Crystal made of my finish with Isaac (by the way check out her recaps of the day before and the day of the marathon)!

Love it!

I never ever would have thought that running for 4 hours 17 minutes and 37 seconds would be one of the most amazing experiences of my life, but it was! I am experiencing a little bit of post-race depression but luckily we have a few more fun things planned with friends in the next couple of months.

I guess for now, I have to accept that it really is over!


  1. Congratulations, Jamie! Best way to get over the fact that the race is over - sign up for the next one!

    1. Haha yea, we're signed up for a few things already :)

  2. Love that last photo!!! I think I hear we're running together in February for some freezing cold half somewhere? :-))

  3. Love this!! Dad will be so happy that you used his videos!! He was having trouble with it but I think they came out good!! Great memories!! I will head over to Crystal blog and read her version!!

  4. Love the videos! Great job!

  5. As the season winds down, it is hard to let go of a great race! You did awesome, and you give me hope that a big PR is possible! I SO want to go under 4:30....7 wouldn't think it would be so hard. Ack!!!! Time to find a course to PR on in the spring ;)
