|Route 66 Marathon/Half
Marathon in Tulsa
November 21 - 22, 2015
|Somehow my sister and my mom convinced me to
join their gang who were participating in the Route 66 Marathon / Half
Marathon in Tulsa. We met in Tulsa on a Saturday afternoon and did
the race the following morning. That morning was the coldest day
we'd had so far that winter. Thankfully everyone finished well and
happy, a good time was had by all.
|Mom's crew, "The Tribe" in line for packet pickup||Me with Desirae and Mom|
|The whole gang of us, less Dana who joined us later||Carb loading at Hideaway pizza|
| A great treat was to meet up with several members of Mom's side
of the family who we haven't seen for a long time. Ina, Frog (Linda),
Diane, and Amanda to name a few.
|Time for the race. We're still in our warm hotel room so we're happy.||Here we've made it to the lobby|
At the starting line in that huge crowd of thousands, we ran into our cousin Amanda - fun!
After several minutes, we could finally see the actual starting line
|We're on our way now!|
|The course went through some beautiful areas around Route 66
|Did I mention that we walked it? This was for medical reasons,
but it was the way to go!
|Finished with 13.1 miles! This is where we learned that we had
to walk yet another mile to get back to our hotel. Yea.
|These brave ladies did the full marathon, go girls!
|My Uncle Joe (Amanda's dad) made us cool '13.1' bracelets. Mine is
very pretty, don't you think?!
