I have thirteen marathons under my fuel belt. Thirty-seven more to go.

Little Rock Half Marathon
Lance, husband of my fabulous friend Liberty, is now a half-marathoner! She said all of this racing was "my fault." Ha! We had a blast over the past 24 hours, and now they're headed home. I should start a marathon-hosting program, because I had a GREAT time on the sidelines. Here is the adventure in photographic form:
entry to the race expo
Lance, soon-to-be half-marathoner
Lance (an extreme Elvis fan) and his pit crew. The boys don't look thrilled...
the leaders of the pack
Here comes Lance at mile 5. He took a fall earlier in the race. Eek!
At mile 8, Lance says "One gear to go!" He said our "visits" perked him up.
Lance strides into the finish line area like a champion! Official chip time: 1:50:30!!!
