......another Eugene photo

Taken by the Main Maniac himself, Steve Yee, (aka "Prez")  this picture was from 15 minutes after my finish. I lifted it from the MM May newsletter.  I still have my 3:55 pace band on my right wrist ;)

So, if you are a Maniac then even if the race photos don't come out at least you get some other shots! 

I stupidly took a space blanket at the finish ..not sure why as it was NOT cold ..u can see I was not wearing it already...wasteful. I was in much better shape than after CIM where I was limping around pretty badly.

It was already pretty sunny..a few clouds only.

  1. I always take a space blanket, even if I don't need it. I can use it at the start of a cold race down the road.

  2. I never take a space blanket. Then about 45 minutes later, I'm freezing. Now that I only run trail races though -- they never give space blankets. So I end up driving with the heater on full blast all the way home.

    Congrats on another marathon! That's always a great achievement.

  3. Here in SA they don't hand out space blankets. Probably because we don't really get very cold weather. Some races hand out towels.

  4. Again - well done and congrats to you.

    I tried a space blanket once - too windy that day for it to be effective for me.

  7. It looks like you are saying in this pic "Enough with the pics, stop already!" lol. If it is cold I take a space blanket, I actually like keeping it as a souvenir of the race if it has race emblems on it.

  8. Congrats again! I can wait to wear my MM top. It's backordered now. Aghghgh. As for the space blankets, I always take them and reuse them.
