Photos from half-marathon

I've finally gotten pictures uploaded:

Here's Jorge, cruising along after about 15 miles (turns out the course marking wasn't so accurate, for those of you puzzling over the milage). Sorry for the crappy quality of the picture. He was moving so fast that I didn't have much time to zoom in or compose the shot.
There's a little itty-bitty Jorge running across the Kamuzu Dam on his way to the finish line.

And here's ME! I walked up to the dam after Jorge passed by so that I could take photos of the other runners.

Jorge's running has been a really good way for us to meet other people here in Lilongwe, as there are quite a lot of dedicated runners. Each Saturday, there is a group run in the morning, followed by breakfast. Today we hosted the run, and cooked up a hefty meal for the runners of pumpkin pancakes, quiche, bacon, buttermilk biscuits (with gravy) and sweet potato hash. Yum.
