Houston Marathon 2008 Photos

Never been to a marathon so I decided to check this one out. It started at 7:00 in the morning last Sunday. I got to the DT just before 6:00 a.m. and had time to walk about before the sun came out:



































Saw Mayor White with some dignitaries:







I got a photo in myself with the Mayor:



Sun began to creep out:











The runners line up:



And they're off:











I left the podum I snuck onto and began to walk around:











































Meet up with the runners around the courthouse buildings:



















More walking around:



































The Fingers Building:





As I'm not originally from Houston, and don't know the DT area too good, I got lost. Actually, the pathway out and west was blocked because of the marathon. I found myself in the neighborhoods just west of DT and came across this little area:









Finally made it to I-59 South:



Came up upon the runners at the intersection of I-59 and 610 Loop heading north:



On I-10 west drove by the new medical office building at Memorial City:





And finally made it to my exit, with the new BP and other office buildings going up off in the distance of the Energy Corridor.



Adios
