I was not the runner today, I was here to cheer on Jenny doing her second marathon. My job was SPECTATOR. I still had to get up early and an error in setting my clock caused an even earlier wake up time. I checked the weather and it was foggy and 48. Brrr. glad I wasn't running. We had about a 45 minute wait before Jenny lined up.

Race Time. We watched her pass us at the start and then headed for the car to find our next spot.
Thanks to Mark and Tom for great directions and driving.
One job of the spectator is being out there to hold up your signs.

And to take articles of clothing when they are no longer wanted or needed. Here come the gloves!

At the finish line you are there to cheer them in. Jenny finished with a PR and a time of 3:41:57. Looks like she's on her way to Boston in 2011!

Last spectator duty was giving directions to Sprinkles Bakery so we could all pick out our very own cupcake. I chose the coconut one. YUM!
