Tulsa's Route 66 Marathon - Half, that is
November 19th & 20th, 2016

 Back to Home Page

Many years ago, Mom was post-knee-surgery and needed to walk a half marathon instead of running it as she usually does.  My sister Desirae and I decided to join her and thus started a tradition of walking two half marathons (or more) together per year.  Unfortunately, this one hurt my knees so I'm going to have to retire from this sport.  It was fun while it lasted though, as you can see in these pictures of my grand finale half marathon.  

We're not even to the starting line and we're already dissolving into
crazy laughter.  Oh wait, it's really just me... 
 The girls talked me into playing this game (Mom is shown playing here)
 at the Brooks booth, and I won a free pair of shoes!  Too cool. 
 Just a few of the thousands of people who were ahead of us. Mom was trying to come to terms with being in Coral D for the first time in her life.
I'm sure it will be the last time too, she didn't care for it back there! 

Trying to show the seemingly endless swath of people ahead of us on the course
 They were kind enough to do the big confetti fanfare for each corral  
 Mom's buds were volunteering at the water stops and we were blessed to find them Finished!  3 hours and 18 minutes I think, one of our faster times.  
 Back at the hotel, starting to feel kinda sore now My free Brooks Beast shoes.  That's my favorite price!
