I never realized how lovely Ottawa can be early on a Sunday morning without all the hustle and bustle of the work week and the government workers invading!
Ottawa Congress Center
The Governor-General's Band
A nervous smile, pre-race jitters!
Marline ready for the race!
The 5K begins!
The elite runners taking off, using the 5K as their 1/2 Marathon warm-up!
Marline after crossing the start line... GO MARLINE!
Loved this couple's leiderhosen (sp?) outfits!
Marline at about the 2K mark... her music must of been loud she couldn't hear me cheer!
5K - Many of the injured soldiers were surrounded by family and friends
I've got a lot of pictures so be patient! It was hard to narrow it down to just a few!!
5K - The oldest couple participating this weekend! So awesome!!!
5K - A great pace bunny shot!
I LOVED these messages written on the pavement!
1/2 Marathon coming down to the final 5K
Marline watching for her friend to cross the start line (we never spotted him)
My buddy Mark (in red & waving) crossing the start line. Last year he ran in the last few KMs with me last year AFTER completing the 1/2 marathon
Marline's friend we were keeping a close eye out for him in the 1/2 Marathon! Great thumbs up!
1/2 Marathon... if this was a dare I hope what he got out of it was worth it!!!
