2008 PHILADELPHIA MARATHON PICTURES

Here are a bunch of pictures from the marathon.
Hope everyone enjoys them. Bart Yasso, autographing my book for me, at the expo.
Here is the start from my vantage point.
Here we are, about to start! What a mass of humanity! You can see the 3:50 pace group on the left.
Game on!
Just past the 1 mile mark, you can see Team Bill, in Orange!
Here I am, Blue Sleeves, black vest, getting ready to hand off my camera to my wife.

Away I go, in front of the yellow w/black jacket guy, on the right. You can see my blue sleeves.
Random runner shot.

The back of my wife, with my brother in law along side of her.
The back of my brother in law's shirt! Love the Flyers logo!
Even Rocky dressed for the occasion!
Here is the finish area.
Here I am a few yards away from becoming a Marathon Finisher!
I'm waving to my adoring crowd! How I had the energy to raise my arm at this point is amazing.
I'm DONE! Getting some warm dry clothes on!
Here's a great shot of my wife & I. I couldn't have done all of this without her support!
Here's the whole crew! Ya gotta love their George Costanza puffy jackets.

There ya have it, a bunch of pics from my 1st marathon!
It was a great day, and I couldn't have done it without the support of my wife, boys, extended family, friends & the blogging community. It was awesome of my brother & sister in law to come in from Boston for me!

Great pictures - it's obvious they came from a real camera (as opposed to my blackberry).

I NEVER would've recognized you in BLUE and no Flyers gear!!

That picture of you near the end of the run with your arms raised should be on the cover of your book.

Great job, brother!
