Mercedes Half Marathon - February 15, 2009

I finally got around to uploading the pictures from last weekend. Bob ran in the Mercedes Half Marathon in downtown Birmingham. This event is the biggest race in Birmingham each year, and it draws thousands of participants from all over. Bob started training for the half a couple of months prior. However, 3 weeks before the race, he was sidelined due to a knee problem. He even started physical therapy. But, that did not stop him! He ran the race anyhow, and finished with a time of 2 hours and 16 minutes. He took his time, knowing full well that his knee was not 100%. With all the troubles he had, he still went out and did this. I am so proud of him. Next year, he's hoping to do the full!

Here is Bob approaching the finish line.

After the race with yours truly.

Mandy, Bob, and Gabe - the 'Ham Sandwiches. The 'Ham Sandwiches is Bob's running group from work. Only three were brave enough to do the half!

Every finish deserves a price!
