Allen caught a few rare shots of Brian and I together at the 12 hour. I didn't see Brian until the beginning of lap 10, after almost 8 hours and just over 30 miles. I knew he was on the course moving still because when I'd come to our camp area I'd see a water bottle moved, or a coke opened in the cooler. He knew I was moving because he would see more and more safety pins on the blanket as I was taking one off every loop during the first 10. I think we were moving about the same speed, just on opposite sides of the loop.
Anyhow, these are my favorite shots that Allen got of us!
Below - Brian and I on the far end of the loop. There is a short downhill section of single track that was a treat to run on all day, I looked forward to getting to that section every loop. We were actually able to run still.....well, long enough for Allen to get a picture anyway : )
Above, I'm trying to choke down half a Cliff Bar. This had to be just before we headed out on lap 10 because after loop 10 I changed shoes. I wanted to get 10 done before I sat down to change my shoes.
I love this picture of Brian. I'm not sure when/what point in the day it was taken, but he's still perky and goofing off for Allen's camera. I had to laugh when I saw him here, and me in the top picture....after 16 years of marriage, I think we are starting to have the same goofy poses.
There's so many more great pictures that captured how fun of a day it was, it's nice Allen loves taking pictures as much as I do and is willing to share them!
He got a few of the signs along the loop, too! These were a nice distraction -
This one had me trying to do the math.
Anyhow, thanks for the pictures, Allen!
