Gary Bash performs the pre-race application of gooey stuff in his nether-regions as the sun greets us.
Gary and I at the start line only minutes prior to embarking on our self-torture.
Me at the starting line getting my standard blind pic of the crowd. The next picture is the pic I took.
Another one of my famous "hold the camera over the head and shoot blindly" shots looking toward the start line.
"We don't really have to go over those mountains, do we? No one told me that there'd be climbing!!!"
"God, please forgive me for this catastrophic stupidity I'm am about to partake in..."
And we're off! Off in the head, that is. This is still when we felt confident but oh how that would change rather suddenly.
This is Gary at about the 5 mile mark. We had just ran up the mountain, crested it, and climbed down into a gorge with a small stream. It was actually a little cold here.
The beloved Hogback Road: straight, slightly downhill, and smooth. This is Gary trying to slow down to maintain pace and strength he will need later.
This is me being dwarfed by a mountain. The day was absolutely gorgeous.
