Pensacola Marathon, November 2011

Race day was also the day of the NAS Pensacola Air Show. As we arrived to catch Jacqui at the end of her marathon these planes flew past in formation.

Everybody had their signs ready to cheer Jacqui-Mom on at the end of the race.

Some race day flowers.

The clock tower at the corner marks the last turn into the finish line about two blocks away. Our arrival time at the clock tower is 10:40 am.

The end of the line.

Family waits.



And Waits some more.

Bronze sidewalk art,

Makes a great seat.

Here she comes, at this point I do not think she has seen any of us yet.

Holding her position,

Still Holding,

We have recognition, the facial expression changes and she picks up the pace leaving behind the gal next to her.

Still increasing the spread.

She is way ahead now on the turn.

Lots of (pain) concentration and focus showing on her face.

In the background, Ise is trying pace her to the end of the block. However, in about 3 seconds he returns to give Nana his sign and loses his chance. He really is a runner and so is his sister.

Two blocks to go until the finish line.

She passed the clock tower at 12:05 pm.
