Worth Coming Back For

I've just returned from downtown Los Angeles, where I picked up my roommate after she crossed the finish line at the Los Angeles Marathon XXII. She ran it faster than any of her training runs and still maintained her usual charm and wit once finished. Her legs however...well, this week will be a long week for Darby.

I am so proud of her. She is not a runner. She's been a weight lifter, rugby player and cheerleader, but she's never been a runner. And today she ran 26.2 miles alongside 25,000 others. Way to go Darbs! Fight on!

(She would kill me that these are her introductory photos on my blog. Just don't tell her.)

OKAY...after a number of frustrating attempts at uploading pics to mu.nu, I've decided to provide a link to the photos, since mu.nu apparently doesn't want to cooperate...still. I'm switching hosts before my official return, I've decided.

Here's the link to the marathon pics.

Way to go, runners!
