A Combination of Bridges and Shadows
Faster Runners Crossing Bridge at about 4 Mile Mark
If you look, there are 2 bridges...the first one with the blue rails, and then the larger one in the background going over the railroad tracks.
Buddy after crossing the Bridge...one side was closed to traffic..
Here he is running in front of the Ramada Inn where we were staying ~ at about Mile 4. It was a really cold morning. His time was a bit more than last week’s ~ 3 hours 18 minutes.In Richmond he ran it in 3 hours 13 minutes. It was really fun to see him take off and then run by me later.
These are the spectators crossing back over the bridge at the Ramada Inn. The start of the race was behind these folk, back across the bridge, and down to the right a bit.
I took this shot after leaving the start of the race...couldn’t resist the shadows. The blue railing bridge is right up ahead and round to the left.
Once again Helen, the girl who works with Buddy at the Outfitters, ran the race. She is a hard core runner so started out with him, and then she was long gone! She is a marathon runner.
Down the middle of the ground between the check-in desk area and the bedroom wing at the Ramada Inn. there was what I would call a mini-moat- it was probably a run-off drainage ditch. As you can see, one side was totally covered with leaves from the trees. The photo was taken around noon this morning - after the half marathon - when the sun was shining brightly.
This is the section down by the footbridge connecting the check-in area to the bedroom wing. This shot was taken early before the sun was out and before the race began.
