We haven’t heard from Barb (#8) Bumann for quite some time. Her return to the marathon scene and Seafair race report.
It was hot! I was far enough behind him that when I passed the time/temperature sign on the bank at mile 25, it read 90 degrees. 90 degrees!
It was lovely to reconnect with Maniacs that I haven't seen for awhile and to be the first to see the unveiling of Hollywood's unique "tat." I also met a number of new people that I look forward to seeing at races in the future. I arrived on Saturday at the Hilton in Bellevue and quickly headed down to the expo to pick up my number and shirt. I went right back to the room and pinned the number on my shirt, then carefully laid out all my clothes, gels, and other paraphernalia before heading to the pool, where I spent a pleasant afternoon reading my book and periodically dipping into the water to cool off. When marc and Ron got to town, they picked me up and we headed to a lovely dinner with marc's daughter, Elizabeth.
Yesterday morning I was very organized and got downstairs in time to meet up with marc and we walked together from the hotel to the bus
