The Faces of the Mercedes Marathon


This year I was very lucky, the 11th Mercedes Marathon ran right by my apartment. Despite the frigid temps, my Lindley, Eva and I were out on the street cheering the runners/walkers on ( for short periods of time.)

This is an event that Birmingham supports wholeheartedly because it benefits some fine charities.  It's well run and well attended.  What always impresses me is that it's a mix of very dedicated runners but so many , many dedicated walkers and joggers of all shapes and sizes and abilities. I have many photos to share. Today some faces that I thought represented the event.

Please click HERE and read the wonderful story of its origin.
