Some of these photos will probably be a little out of order as they happened today, but I’ll start with our reason for being here today. Ian’s wife runs the Mount Marathon race in Seward every year. It starts in the downtown area and goes about 1.5 miles up the mountain and then back to the downtown area. We were here to cheer her on and she did great! Here are a few photos of Jennifer starting out in the race as well as the first shot of the starting point. She is in the navy shorts with white top.
And here’s a series of photos as she ended the race.
The first and second place runners in the race were Olympic runners according to the announcer. They pretty much ran side by side the entire race. Here's a series of photos of them running the race.
Following the race we found something to eat and watched the parade. Gale had Grant sitting on his shoulders for a better view.
After seeing this, I vow never to try out for belly dancing (not that I ever even thought about it)
Jennifer is on the phone and Grant to the right and Summer furthest right. The others in the photo are Jennifer’s friend Claire’s children.
Madeleine, Gale and Nikki.
After the race we went down to the marina where Gale and Kimber keep their boat. Nikki and Grant crashed on the dock.
When Nikki found out Ken was taking her photo, she made a face.
We will be driving back to Kenai either tomorrow or Wednesday depending on how bad the traffic is here in town. It already looks like many have exited, but there are still a lot to go.
