Seattle Marathon

David decided that this year he wanted to run in the Seattle Marathon. It's 26.2 miles through Seattle on a November Sunday morning.

Saturday night we had to go pick up his race day packet so we decided to make an evening of it downtown. Pacific Place does a little show at 6:00pm that includes snow. I had always wanted to see it so this was the night. It was really cool.

After that we met DJ & Ali at the spaghetti factory downtown for a "farewell" dinner. I am still bummed that I don't ahve the opportunity to get to know Ali a little more. sorry, no photos, we were way too busy laughing and having a good time.

So we got up extra early on Sunday & I drove David downtown to the start of the race. After realizing the tempature downtown I headed for first service and then returned to wait at the finish line for him.

It was really cool to watch him cross the finish line. He did really well.

If you look really closely at the time on the left you can see that David finished the race in 4 hours and 38 minutes. He even says he is going to do it again. I'm trying to talk him into the Disney World Marathon, but that may take some more talking.
