Great White North – Race Photos

I have been so overwhelmed you guys.  Thank you so much for all of your support and wonderful comments about my race, both before and after.  I feel very fortunate to have some amazing blog readers who have become great friends.  I may or may not get to meet you at some time, but I really appreciate you guys!  From the comments on my posts to those on Facebook, you guys absolutely rock.  Thank you!!  Also a huge thanks to my family, friends and AMAZING teammates as well.  I couldn’t imagine being on this journey without you!

My wonderful teammate Caroline was cheering us on at Great White North this weekend and took some fantastic photos of us.  I’m sad she wasn’t able to race with us, but her support and enthusiasm was such a huge boost on Sunday.  Next year Caroline, we’ll get to race together!  Here are some pictures that she grabbed race day:      GWN2009 -  0165 GWN2009 -  0238 GWN2009 -  0239 GWN2009 -  0240GWN2009 -  0351GWN2009 -  0369 GWN2009 -  0370GWN2009 -  0522GWN2009 -  0523

I love the last one...are you getting ready to barf or cry there;)? The emotion can look quite similar!

I always appreciate friends who stand out on the course to snap photos. They're always so much better than the official pics! Caroline sure got some good ones - even some where you may still be hyperventilating at the end?

Congrats again!!

Were they playing 'O Canada' on the last two? It's always great to see someone smiling during their event.
