9/11 memorial at Race

8 miles on the schedule today......done!  This was my last 8 miler during midweek before the marathon - yeah!  I hate the eight!  Happy to get back to a little bit shorter runs mid week.


At the Capital City River Run Half Marathon on Sundat, we were walking to the start of the race when we  passed this 9/11 memorial.  I have not been to NY to see Ground Zero so this is the closest I have come to it.  This was a piece of the tower that fell.  I assume parts of the towers were distributed over the country for memorials like this.  Kind of freaky to see this before a race but puts things in perspective - it's only a race!  No professional race pictures yet.

Also got a picture by the capital building as well prior to the race:

Question of the day?  Have you seen a 9/11 memorial in your state?

Have a great day and.....Keep Running!!!!!


  1. We had a nice tribute at our race too. You're right, that whole day kind put things back into perspective.

  2. wow. that would be pretty inspirational right before a race!

  3. I don't know if one around here, but I think the idea is very cool. What a great way to pay tribute.
