Colfax Pics

I don't have much by way of pics, but my stepmom did manage to capture a few pics during the race on Sunday, and this is my first chance to get them up. So, here is the start line with the wheelchair competitors preparing for their start. At the finish, in City Park, the trees were freshly green with the richness of spring (I know, I'm a poet, and I didn't know it!); I'm on the far left. But you can't see me all that well; however, I'm the munchkin in the white visor and grey shirt.
And here I am after the finish. I was facing the sun, so I'm a squinty-squinterson. And yeah, I ran the whole race in a t-shirt, so you know the temps were cool (usually, I just race in a sports bra and shorts here in FL).
In other news, I really don't have much going on today. I took a 2 hour nap this afternoon that was glorious; I can't wait for the long weekend just because I want to catch up on sleep. Thankfully, I just have classes tomorrow, and then it's 4 days off for Jess, wa-hoo!

The course looks like it was pretty. Great pictures, you look so proud with your medal.

A 2 hour nap...I am jealous. Naps were my favorite part of college life!

It looks like a beautiful day in CO. I do miss spring. Glad Lex could take a few pictures for us :)

Great pics. How is it that you look supah cute after a 1/2. Naps rule. They need to bring it back to everyday life.

Great pics for a great race. Nice job!

Looks like a great day for a race! Congrats on a job well done.

And... sweet nap! Aren't those the best things ever!?!?! I'm a firm believer that nap time should be carried over into the business world. We'd be so much more productive. :)

Jess, great pics! And I notice the bib, I worked on that one! (didn't design it but prepped the variable data and we printed them)

Great pics, Jess. I've been trying to load pics on blogger for a day and a half. I'm wondering if something is up here and not with blogger.

Have a great weekend.

I am just wondering why your support team did not have a beer waiting for you. Disappointing to say the least.

I'm hoping for 4 days off too -gotta ask the boss today.

I'm totally paranoid about running in a sports bra only. I think my stomach will jiggle around too much. It is a goal of mine though: to run with sports bra only. (I have some lame goals)

Smiling, waving, and running!

Super pics!

Does anyone else get oddly inspired by the wheelchair competitors? They just make my heart sing.

Mendy said...

Great pics, Jess! Looks like a good time.

Crystal said...

Nice pics chica. I'm hoping to catch up on that sleep over the long weekend, too. Maybe a nap by the pool will do.

teacherwoman said...

Great job, Jess!! You looked like you really enjoyed yourself! And you do look like a munchkin next to that tall guy! :)

J~Mom said...

Great pictures! It looks nice and green there! Sleep sounds really nice! :>D
