Z ran the Long Beach Half Marathon
on October 7.
We had to get up super early to leave our
friends' house in LA & make the trek
down to Long Beach to find some parking...
in addition to the half, there was also the full marathon,
a bike "tour", a 5K, a handcycle race, and a walk,
so there were over 25,000 people participating,
plus the spectators.
Here's Z before the sun even came up.
This guy did the bike tour on a unicycle!
Around mile 2
My view at the finish.
Unfortunately they kept all spectators
well away from the finish gate,
so I had a hard time capturing the end
of Z's race.
It's ok, though, because he took 9th place.
Not too bad in a race of over 11,000 people!
