Today was race day! The Baltimore Marathon Relay that is.
To start off the flag for the national anthem was hang glided in!
The Governor gave a little speech…he is up for reelection so he better be there!
In the Ravens jacket, not the old man in the glasses. Group shot before Lindsay was off to the buses and Phil headed to the start line!
David, Lindsay’s LOML, and I walked over to our handoff point and watched the elite runners go by.
Then we saw Lindsay speed by!
It was a little chilly at the start, but the sun was out and warming the place up by the time my leg started.
Poor David had to take pictures with two cameras in two seconds.
I completed my portion in 47:40 on my Garmin and 48:07 something on the clocks, but they were weird because I never crossed a time pad but Lindsay did and the Chris after me did about 100ft after the handoff. Either way I beat my 10k time by 2 min!
Our official time was 3:16:56 12/521 in our mixed division, 31 overall! Pretty good considering I have had more fingers than run in the past 2 months. We honestly have no expectations for the race, but we all wanted to run!
I was so happy that Lindsay and David were able to come up for the event. It really made the day special! Great job team!
