Today we walked to the end of our street to watch the last .2 miles of the 2013 Mount Desert Island Marathon. The finish line was a 5 minute walk from our house. And all those people ran 26.2 miles to get there! The race also included a half marathon (red bibs). Maybe someday I can run the 13.1 mile course, but for today, I had a lot of fun taking these shots and listening to the crowd cheer on the runners as they approached the final stretch. The winner of today's marathon finished with an astonishing (to me) time of 2:32:55. That's 5:51 per mile!
