This weekend, I watched my girlfriend's father run—and finish—his first marathon. Well, I saw him a few times at different points on the course. During most of the race, I took pictures. Here are the ones I like.
These were the first runners to reach the 17 mile mark. They were...intense, to say the least.
Another early runner.
One of the larger "packs" of runners, also by the 17 mile mark.
Kids unenthusiastically handing out dry towels.
Looking for a very particular runner.
Not fooled by my attempt to take a candid.
Approaching the finish line.
