2015 Mayorz Marathon!!

Bilbo here, at mile marker 8 to see how our racers are doing. They should all be fresh after Miss Madi's wonderful water stop!! Click HERE if you haven't had a chance to visit the watering hole yet!
Mile 8 begins near the beautiful Redwood National Park!

Looks like Socks is taking the lead....or maybe the rest of the pups are a bit frightened by the look in his face...he has the "Eye of the Tiger" for sure!!!

Looks like Wyatt has his own special Angel Cheerleader, Stanzie, cheering him on!!

...and here comes the rest of the crowd!!!

 We continue the race along the trails of Fern Canyon...you may recognize it from the famous movie, 
Jurrasic Park 3! Let's see what the runners are up to!

Hmmmmm....look like there is an unexpected racer on the course!!

He is definitely kick-starting some of the racers!! BOL!

We enter mile 12 along the California coastline! 

Looks like we have another marathon guest...Bruce, former child star of the movie Jaws (and sequels) has joined the race!!

Looks like Socks is just as scary as Bruce!!

...and it looks as if Bruce is more frightened of us, than we are of him!!!!

What a fun race this is!!  
Now, head on over and see what's up at the Blogville Police Pawty Shack, and then visit Scribbles and Pigeon for the Mile Markers 13-15! Just click on their names below to be transported over!

Why those miles were like being at the theater near you. I was expecting Freddy Cougar to jump out at any moment. Screaming makes you run faster.
Thanks for being a friend

We really loved this leg of the race. We loved how they were trying to welcome Big Foot to Blogville. Lol. Oh and we were impressed the runners were all facing the same direction. (Did u flip the image in photoshop and re-do the number. Very nice.) Good job to everyone involved with planning the race.

Taffy said...

I can't believe the racers found Bigfoot! I'm with Easy....run for your lives! I sure am glad Stanley was able to stay safe. Seems like your area of Blogville is full of danger, which means lots of excitement too!
