    A Look Back.



Marine Corps Cheerleading.

I was sooooooo tired this morning and did not want to drag myself out of bed at all.  But thoughts of anxious marathoners pinning their bibs on all over the city got me out from under the covers, and out the door into the freezing cold morning.  For the first time ever, I headed out as a spectator all by myself.  It was kind of weird.

As far as cheering for this race went, I had to be realistic.  Typically I would wear my running shoes and try to race all over the city – catching runners at multiple spots.  But since I’m dragging around this busted knee, I am moving MUCH slower than usual.  I realistically picked two spots where I would hopefully be able to see all of my friends.  I headed up to the mall to find remnants of yesterday’s rally

IMG_2598 (640x479)

And I discovered when I got there that I was SUPER early.  No one had even come through this water station yet!  (Can I also add that this was the best water stop crew EVER?  They literally screamed the entire time runners were coming through.)

IMG_2599 (640x480)

I was kicking myself for not being able to get to the earlier mile markers since I had so much time to kill, but I knew there was no way I’d get back to my spot if I left it.

IMG_2600 (640x478)

As planned, I camped out right next to mile 19.  Having run 5 marathons myself, I am well aware that support is most needed in the final miles, so I figured that was where I could be most useful.

IMG_2602 (480x640)

The sun was just starting to shine through the trees, and there was a wonderful crisp cool air.  PERFECT weather for running a marathon.

IMG_2604 (640x476)

There was a cute bagpipe trio stationed next to me, and they played every time a handbiker rolled by.  It made our spot so much more festive and exciting!

IMG_2606 (467x640)

I took advantage of my extra time (two hours!) and wandered around the empty mall for a while.  It’s not very often you get the National Mall all to yourself!

IMG_2607 (640x479)

IMG_2611 (466x640)

Finally after much anticipation, signs of runners in the distance started to appear…

IMG_2614 (640x471)

IMG_2616 (640x471)

The lead pack!

IMG_2617 (640x483)

These guys were FLYING!  I thought it was cool that all four were still together so far into the race. 

lt="IMG_2618 (640x478)" src="http://www.dailygarnish.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/IMG_2618-640x478_thumb.jpg" width="474" height="355" />

Once the lead group passed, there was another long lull before any more runners came.  At this point I realized that my phone battery was on red.  I decided to run into the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum to camp out by a plug and let it charge for about 15 minutes, so that I could keep texting and Tweeting and keep up with the runners I was tracking.

IMG_2621 (640x479)

First time in the Air & Space Museum, and it was only to change my phone.  FAIL.

IMG_2622 (480x640)

When I headed back outside, the runners were finally starting to reach mile 19.

IMG_2623 (640x479)

Including Mario and Luigi!

IMG_2624 (640x474)

And Beetlejuice!  These guys were not only running in costumes – they were running FAST!  This was probably around the 3:15 pace group.  Insane.

IMG_2627 (479x640)

There were also several military members running with full sized American flags.  Very impressive, and made me a little teary.

IMG_2629 (466x640)

Buzz Lightyear was having a good day – moving fast!

IMG_2630 (473x640)

And then just as I was hoping, Erika appeared right on pace!  We are friends from Cincinnati, and we used to see each other running all the time in our neighborhood back home, so it was really fun to see her running up here in my new city.  She was killing it – right in front of the 4:00 group!

IMG_2632 (478x640)

Mile 19 was a hard place to cheer.  Having run so many races myself, I knew exactly how the runners felt, and I didn’t really know what to yell to them.  I saw one girl get to the 19 marker, bend over and start sobbing.  She cried “oh my god, only NINETEEN?”  It was hard to watch.  I just yelled and smiled and told her it was ONE run – she could do it.  I hope it helped.  Others were starting to walk and struggle.  I only hoped I would see them again at the later mile marker!

IMG_2633 (640x480)

This guy was obviously awesome.

IMG_2634 (480x640)

And then she appeared!  The Peanut Butter Runner herself – Jen was looking strong and still smiling!  I haven’t seen her since we said goodbye in Charlotte.  I wished I could have run out and given her a huge hug.  

IMG_2635 (479x640)

As the runners grabbed their water, I grabbed my purse and scrambled back to the Metro in hopes of catching Erik
a and Jen at mile 24.

IMG_2636 (640x479)

As my Metro train crossed the water, I could see the runners tackling the never-ending mile 20 bridge that I had been warned about…

IMG_2637 (640x464)

I made it down to mile 24 and met up with Casey, who was nearby working in a Starbucks.  We got there just in time to see Erika fly past again!  Looks like she ended up finishing around 4:03 – SO totally amazing!  Congrats, girl. 

IMG_2639 (469x640)

She was followed by this scary painted man in a kilt.

IMG_2640 (462x640)

And a few minutes later, we saw Jen again!  Sadly, I thought I snapped a picture of her but when I looked through them she wasn’t in it after all.  :(  I screamed my head off for her, but she must have turned her iPod way up for final mile motivation.  Even though she didn’t see me, it was fun to cheer and see her – I knew she was on her way to finishing strong. 

Casey and I cheered for a few more minutes before heading back towards home to beat the finish line crowds on the train.

IMG_2643 (640x471)

Even though I would much prefer to RUN a race, sometimes cheering for one can be just as fun.  I’d be lying if I said this one wasn’t a little hard to watch.  But I’m glad I didn’t sit at home and pout, and that I was able to hit the streets and cheer for some of my other favorite runners‘

IMG_2646 (474x640)

Realistically, I’ll still be sidelined for a while.  But I’m trying to stay positive and set some goals that seem possible down the road.  If all goes well at the orthopedic doctor, and my leg feels relatively healed in the next month, I may attempt to run Charlotte’s Thunder Road.  That will depend on how much fitness I’ve lost this month.

Further down, (and probably much more probable) I’m setting my sights on another DC marathon – the National Marathon in March.  I am determined to run 26.2 in my new favorite city, and I know a lot of other runners and bloggers who are doing this one too.  Hopefully I’ll be able to join them!

There is something so fun about watching marathons – just a great, positive feel in the air.  Watching the runners this morning left me inspired and excited to get back out there at some point myself.   I’m going to be smart about it and listen to my doctors and my body.  But whenever my body does decide that it’s ready, my heart will be a few skips ahead towards the starting line.

We saw so many of the same runners — I loved their costumes! (I was right around the corner from you by the Capitol Reflecting Pool.)

All the runners actually kinda made me want to run a marathon too (a thought that has NEVER crossed my mind before). I’m sure you’ll be back at it sooner rather than later. Can’t wait to cheer you on during the National Marathon!

Thanks so much for coming out and cheering! I looked for you every once in a while and thought how cool it would be to “meet” you at the race! By mile 19 my legs were screaming at me though, so I dont think I paid much attention to my surroundings. National Marathon would be a great goal!

I am glad you went to cheer, I know you would have much rather been running but I think it was really great of you to go out and yell support. Plus you got to see a bunch of crazy adults in costumes ;)
I would also like to let you know that you are such an inspiration, I love reading your blog. You have made me want to run more, today I completed a 10k and in March my goal is a half. Maybe someday I will even attempt a marathon (we will see how the 1/2 goes), but reading your blog definitively makes me want to try. Stay strong and cheerful!

My sister just told me today she might run the National Marathon in March – if you do it, I’ll have at least two people to watch and cheer for!

I just got back from the marathon! I’m a long time silent reader of this blog but I just wanted to say that I dedicated mile 22 to you. It was hard so I thought about how you killed your last long run and how you would’ve destroyed the marathon today if you had run it. You will rock next year’s marathon!!!! This was my first marathon!!

I’m praying that your body heals as soon as possible! = )

Hopefully I’ll be cheering for you next year at MCM! And maybe at the National Marathon! The National Marathon is extra special because the course is entirely in DC. Random knowledge from working at Team In Training for so long :)

Good for you for getting out there and cheering them – it must have been really hard to watch everyone running a race that you were so close to running. And knowing how much training went into it already makes it even harder. Way to stay strong.

I just started reading your blog right after the 17 mile run-from-pergatory…and was thrilled that a food blogger was also a marathoner. I just ran the St. George, Utah marathon a month ago…my 17th. I have been really busy and finally had a chance to catch up on your blog last night and was DEVASTATED when I read about your accident. I KNOW how you felt after all that training and work. Way to go with the good attitude…you are amazing. AND it’s OK to be a little down…we runners understand!

You’ll be running right along with them in no time! It’s great you were able to see your friends and cheer them on, I’m sure they really appreciated it :)

My BF and I take our bikes to the Mall sometimes and ride around first thing in the morning. It’s so awesome having the Mall to ourselves and everything looks soooo beautiful, you guys should go up there one morning super early when you’re doing better and just walk around. And the Air and Space Museum at Dulles is far, but even BETTER than the one on the Mall.

:) You’re not missing anything at the Air and Space Museum, seriously.
I’m glad you’ve been able to stay positive about your injury and appreciate your body and the process. Sometimes setbacks can help us gain perspective, even if we don’t want them!

I am also thinking about the National Marathon, but I may start with the 1/2 and maybe Marine Corps next Fall?

I saw Mario and Luigi too! I cheered at mile 23 in Crystal City. It was great to see all the runners and encouraging spectators. But, it is hard to witness the runners break down toward the end of the race. All you can do is cheer your heart out!

Congrats on getting out there anyway, I have been having little mini-pouting moments as the races I’m registered for pass by me. You are so positive girl!

I hope you can pull on the runners soon!

Oh my goodness – the “awesome” man running with the American flag w/ the crazy-cool mustache is from Sarasota, FL! I see him almost every weekend running – he started the tradition of running with the flag a while ago and runs almost every weekend with one, and always on holidays like 4th of July, Labor Day and even 9/11. He even sets up spots on his long run courses for people to join him for a few patriotic miles. So fun to see him on someone’s blog!
