Capital City Marathon May 16, 2010

Ashleigh was there!



In the hotel room ready to go...


This is the first hill you come to... nice

 



Not to many pictures this time for good reason...

Bronze Level Marathon Maniac - Oh Yeah!
2nd Marathon

We ran by this lake it was so beautiful.  These pictures were taken the day before!
We drove the course and we could not believe how beautiful it was.  Breath taking views.
Wish I had more pictures to show.

This is the view we had from our hotel

The Governor Hotel
621 Capitol Way South
Olympia, WA 98501
(360) 352-7700
 
I highly recommend this hotel it is: runner friendly, 2 minutes from start line, 1 minute from finish, 2 pm late check out, 6 am runners breakfast, view of lake and Capital building, what more could you ask for, oh yeah the best service.  This hotel is older but it is perfect for a race weekend.

Saturday when we arrived I was able to layout here in this park for awhile.  It was a beautiful day.  Best of all great company.  My running buddy's Shannon, Tammy, Heidi, Leslie, Ashlee, Angie and Lisa made it a perfect trip and race.   Go Fleet Feet Racers!!
