Looking the other direction, you can see where we had just come from. I wanted this pic just for the view and this pic doesn't do it justice.
"OH MY GOD, THE SUN IS COLLIDING WITH THE EARTH!!!!" What would be a marathon without a shot of Gary Bash's thumb sneaking in at the corner?
Absolutely gorgeous scenery that betrays the pain associated with this run.
Perfect camouflage (except that I'm wearing a bright blue shirt!). Gary decided that a picture of me taking a picture of him was necessary. Gary's a little OFF, if ya know what I mean.
Again, stunning beauty but beauty that can only carry you so far when your RUNNING 26.2 FREAKIN' MILES!!!
This is the only cool picture of me running. Notice the form, stride, and confident attitude. This was early in the race and this scene did not happen in the later miles, believe me.
This must have been taken after I abandoned Gary (these are from his camera). Ah, the loneliness of the long-distance runner.
Another one of my signature shots at arm's length. Alone on the desert, it would be a bad time to trip and crack my melon open.
