2006 Marathon photo roundup

As promised, my last few notable shots or things that amused me at the marathon. Leading with the strongest entry is the Big Giant Hat. How can you go wrong? More after the jump.

Can’t beat the simplicity of the little devil costume.

David and Katie seem to have switched sides, unless they meant these to be read right to left.

Lisa and Darren have more independent shirts AND the Big Giant Hat.

Last but not least is the Flag of Honor. You can’t read it in that image but the red and white stripes are filled in with names of victims of terrorist violence. Carrying that thing through 26 miles can’t be a minor task on the best of days. I’d say that today, with what Capitol Weather identified as 15 to 20mph winds with occasional higher gusts, did not qualify as the best of days.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
