Me and my Vera at the Marine Corps Marathon!

Last Sunday (Oct 30) I went to the Marine Corps Marathon here in DC/Arlington to cheer on my friend Katie who was hardcore enough to run 26.2 miles!  It was a little chilly so I wore my new jacket from The North Face...everyone from California who moves to a place with cold weather should have one, haha!  Everyone else probably would have thought that it was overkill.  It is great, because it goes great with my Happy Snails Bookbag

Here is a picture of me at the finish line expo. 

These guys ran the whole marathon carrying flags!  I can't imagine carrying those while trying to run.

The finish line is at the Iwo Jima Memorial. 

It was a great way to spend my Sunday! 


  1. Alison, that's me with the flag. We'll be back again this year for the group's 26th year in a row with the flags. My 10th. This will also be my 50th marathon. Thanks for the photo! -Kirby Mills

    1. That is so neat! I really enjoyed being able to watch the marathon last year. This year I will be running in the 10k and hopefully I will be up for staying around to cheer on some friends as they finish the marathon. Congrats on your 50th marathon!
