No, don't look at the smiling guy in the red... Look at me in the green! Mile 5, baby!
Erica passing up a super tall man...
Mmmm! Pound that Gu, Erica!
It may look like I'm about to pass these ladies, but I'm pretty sure everyone was passing me. Is this mile 10? Not quite sure.
Look at that concentration... (Or maybe I'm checking out the person's butt in front of me. Marathons give you a lot of time to do dumb stuff like that)
Hey--there's that stupid cheesy smile I seem to do while I'm running... No, that's not two thumbs up--it's a gu and water.
Corner or Morse and Fair Oaks. That's mile 20! Lookin' good, Erica! (And is that lady in the red shorts from the 80's?)
Erica's smiling at mile 20! Good sign!
Erica sprinting to the finish for a 4:28 marathon time!
Go Erica! (She's just ahead of that girl with the blue shirt tied around her waist)
Um, not quite sure what this is a picture of. But that lady has long hair!
Rounding the corner to the finish line! Capitol Mall and 8th Street, Sacramento, CA.
Sprinting to the finish! I have NEVER had that much energy at the finish of a race before... Look--Even that guy behind me is saying, "Dang! Look at that girl go!"
Finish! Official chip time 4:44:44! (4 is my new favorite number). There's the California State Capitol Building behind the finish. I'm the one in green with my hands in the air (I was a little excited).
